Reviving this WordPress blog to make something fruitful out of it

Anyway, since I’ve got nothing better to do, I thought of reviving this blog and see where it would lead to.

What’s this blog going to be from now on? Well, still a library-centric blog. But like what the tagline says most of the entries will be links to interesting stuff around the Internet.

Hope you’ll enjoy the ride.

For part one of this project, most of the books that were included have expired copyright date and are already in the international public domain. Most of these are 19th century American literature and history works.
