I've been corresponding with the person who writes the lovely literary blog Desperate Reader. This collection of passionate and interesting musings on books and writers is particularly well-adorned with a range of illustrations and links that can take the reader down many fascinating digital avenues.

I particularly liked the 'Books I wish everyone would read' feature. My own such list would always be led by The Third Policeman, accompanied quietly by everything from Kurt Vonnegut, the His Dark Materials trilogy, oddities like Endland Stories and many others, but including no Thomas Hardy novels whatsoever, despite his being a passionate advocate of bicycle use.

I do love the poems, however.
