A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Hobbits
For your next vacation, head to Hobbiton. (video)

Tunes
The fun (or frustrating) thing about the Literary Jukebox is trying to understand why specific songs are paired with specific literary quotes. No explanations are given.

Shhhh!
Snaps of librarians.

Trove
A trove of Moomin art. What the hell is a Moomin anyway?

Appealing
Help some dictionary editors sort out the origins of some tricky words at OED Appeals.

Gobble
