"If you see a man in a blizzard bending over a rock you may be sure it is me and that I am lost."

Isn't this a great chair? It's called a bibliochaise.

Nice for the armchair adventurer.

Coincidentally, I found this list of National Geographic’s 100 Best Adventure Books this morning. Plenty of cannibals, grizzlies, hallucinogens, capsized boats, loneliness, frostbite, nazis, bad omens, scuba gear, man-eating felines, oxygen deprivation, vipers, fatal mistakes, avalanches, flying spears, banditry, dogsleds and rampant malaria.

I am woefully behind, having read only three of the titles (26, 37, 70). But I’ve scribbled down a number of others that I hope to get to (1, 9, 41, 58, 67, 69, 83).

In this life.

That chair is a great idea, but I would be worried about the books if someone wasn't careful with the books in the arm rests.

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a bibliobed.

That's a great idea. A bibliodiningroomtable would be nice, too. Like the ipod, a good way to tune your loved ones out, only more old-fashioned.
