DailyLit is awesome. I just subscribed to "Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions" by Edwin Abbott. (via Wil Wheaton)
Great book. Well actually a very poorly written book with one really good chapter that shows just how cool arithmetic and geometric sequences can be. The rest is, literally, a 2-dimensional representation of how Victorian English society blew chunks. And it reads like something written by a precocious middle school student who just learned about thesauruses. (or is it thesaurii?) It’s a lot of fun to force high school students to read it, nonetheless.
just into the first chapter so far. the concept is fun and looking forward to finishing it off just for the fun aspect of it.
and I’ll go with ‘thesaurii’. But i’m partial to any word that is pluralized with an ‘i’
I remember quite liking it as a kid, but I don’t know how well it holds up.
man am I the only nerd that’s never read this? DailyLit is gonna be so good for me. heh
