Found a couple of gold mines

April 14, 2005

of very different natures.  Jed has shown me the wonders of the Multnomah County Library system.

First up, The Batman Handbook.  Oh yeah baby.  Everything you wanted to know about how to become the man in the black cape.  With sections entitled "How to Drive the Batmobile on Two Wheels," "How to Take out a Roomful of Goons" and "How to Withstand Poison Kisses," how can you go wrong?  My personal fav is the part entitled: "How to Build a Batcave."  Complete with diagrams. 

Second up, for those that want to show their children (now or later in life) the wonderful world of Tolkien, check out "Bilbo’s Last Song."  A kid’s book written by Tolkien.  It’s great.  Beautiful illustrations with a poem by Bilbo about leaving for the Grey Havens.  Cute book.  Great for the kiddos.
