A couple of interesting links:
The British Museum (with help from Microsoft, who did the digitization) has released over a million images from books of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries onto the internet. A few of the highlights are here.
With the end of the year coming up, a lot of people are posting their best-reads of the year list. Science fiction author Fran Wilde has an interesting one, here. Full disclosure: my co-author and I have a story on the list.
