Looking for a holiday gift for the bibliophile in your life? Look no more, for here is a handy list! I had no idea there was so much out there.

Another idea is to buy your favorite librarian some drinks and then watch the newest Librarian special onTNT this weekend. (Well, I think that would be fun, at any rate. Your mileage may vary, depending on the librarian.)

Did anyone else read the Nate the Great books growing up? Did anyone else think they'd seen Emily the Strange before, but couldn't remember just where? Well. Wow.

From Cassandra, some bizarre interview questions from Oxford and Cambridge, including "would you rather be a novel or a poem?" I'd rather be a poem, myself.

Google has their own advent calendar of sorts, counting down to 2009 with useful resources and widgets.

And lastly, found via Stephen's Lighthouse, the Typealyzer purports to categorize your writing according to the Myers-Briggs personality test. I put Folderol in and it told me the following:

ESTP - The Doers

The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities. The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

The most hilarious part of this analysis is that in real life, Myers-Briggs pegs me as an INFJ. Keep this in mind if you meet me in person, I guess!

Tomorrow: links from others! Thanks, all.

Ok. I know I should be doing other things but your blog sings the songs of Sirens.

So, I snorted my Dr. Pepper through my nose when I read what the Typeanlyzer said about you. Granted, you are very playful, but other than that? This test is seriously flawed. If it would've said, "You are brilliant, creative, funny and kind..." But, physical out-door Doris, I don't see it! So, that's my two cents, take it for what it's worth.

And, I would like to be a novel that reads like poetry! That would be fun, or tragic, or both!!!!!!
