Book Excerpt for the Day

    This is a bit of the continent, sticking out into the warmer sea to the southeast.  Most of its inhabitants call it Florida.

    Actually, they don’t.  Most of its inhabitants don’t call it anything.  They don’t even know it exists.  Most of them have six legs, and buzz.  A lot of them have eight legs and spend a lot of time in webs waiting for six-legged inhabitants to arrive for lunch.  Many of the rest have four legs, and bark or moo or even lie in swamps pretending to be logs.

    (from Wings,  by Terry Pratchett)
    8½*/10.  The full review is here.
