Why taradiddles?

According to dictionary.com, a taradiddle is "pretentious nonsense" or "silly pretentious speech or writing," or "twaddle," or even "a fib."

Excepting "a fib," taradiddle seems a fitting description of much of the writing to follow in this blog. Thanks to drlogan for suggesting the title.

And now . . .
Book recommendation for today: The Small-Mart Revolution, by Michael H. Shuman.

If you're into graphic novels, please consider publications from the new-ish publisher Cinebook Ltd. Check out the Yakari books if you're shopping for young children. They're listed here on www.amazon.com.

And another plug . . . check out the book reviews at
www.curledup.com.

Happy midweek to you!
