worldcat.org rocks

Well, that was pretty wonderful. I just got back from VRA in Toronto and was reading last week's New York Times book review. The review of Our magnificent bastard tongue: the untold history of English by John McWhorter (Gotham Books) caught my eye. I went to worldcat.org so that I could tag it in del.icio.us with "wannaread" (aka wannabuy but don't want to pack). I searched "our magnificent bastard tongue" and got the bib record for the book AND the citation for the review!

The perfect opportunity to buy an Amazon Kindle, so you can acquire books that you don't have to pack! Good to have you back.
