I have a "whenever I get around to doing it" Newsletter of Wonderful Things. Why a newsletter? I dunno. It seems more personal somehow. Fight me.

You can view all the previous newsletters here. You can sign up here Newsletter of Wonderful Things or just wait and get them later on the blog, which hopefully you have subscribed to. Email folks get it first!

Here's the most recent newsletter that I sent out April 24th.  

Thanks again for signing up for this experiment. Here's some interesting things I've come upon recently. If you forwarded this (or if it was forwarded to you) a reminder: You can sign up at and the archive of all previous Newsletters is here.

Remember, you get the newsletter here first. This one will be posted to the blog as an archive in a few weeks. 

(BTW, since you *love* email you can subscribe to my blog via email here: DO IT!)

P.P.S. You know you can forward this to your friends, right?

When you preface this with "Here's the LAST newsletter", I always read "final". Since I like them a lot, it makes me sad for a minute before I remember you only mean "previous". Thanks for cross posting these to the blog, though, so Google Reader can tell me about them (for another month).

Good point. I'll change that.

Thanks! They do always contain multiple things that make me smile or think.

Your link to the YA book list redirects to the home page on mobile browsers. Management's concept of "site design for mobile" -- just redirect everyone to the home page.

Graham - Yes, that's my #1 Mobile site complaint. Super irritating.

If you can find the old "Rhyme Torrents" albums (volumes 1 through 8) from around 2008, there's some really good music to be had, cc-licensed IIRC.

Scott, might check out the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. If you read and liked any of the Harry Potters or Hunger Games, Mistborn will blow you away!

That cloth tearing sim blows me away. Wow.
