I am endlessly enchanted, entertained, and blessed by the diversity of content available to me on my PC through the www. It has pretty much supplanted my interest in TV.

I'd like to propose thart people in TSG post their favorite sites, and any new sites they feel are worth sharing with others. Here's my first recommendation.

http://www.aldaily.com/

I first became aware of it as Cybereditions. It is done by one fellow in New Zealand, and is updated daily. It is now known as Arts and Letters Daily. Hope you like it.

Yes, it is down right now. Sorry, poor timing on my part. But it is well worth checking out when it's back up.

Here's one that is incredible, it has 100's of millions of web pages archived:

I'll try again later. I really don't have a favorite site. I surf alot though... when im not here or in 4anything.com... thats an audio chatroom I am a member of.I don't get into reading so much... I fall asleep trying...lol

So surfing around is good ........... not to still. I get bored quick.

Hiya

I know many will think, SAD, but I am an avid book collector. Can't just sit on the web all the time. Just 90% of it :D

http://www.justbooks.co.uk/index.asp

JustBooks is a leading European marketplace for used, rare, second-hand, antiquarian and out-of-print books. Search in over 5 million titles

I have found one that I was searching for from 1929. Its £30, but I don't mind.

New site that my credit card will see :p

Well, would you part with your hard earned cash for it?

How much to insure it, and it'll be just my luck that I open it for a read, and the pages disintegrate. :D

If you're tired of being surrounded by negativity, then you might like to receive these stories in your E-mail twice a week. These stories are written by people like you and me about people who have touched their lives in what they consider an Heroic Way. Be prepared to tear up, some of these stories will really touch your heart, as they have mine:

eggplant43 ,

That a hard one but hey this site is great.

Thanks for the http://web.archive.org/ because I found some web pages from a site that was closed down. I just need the bookmark link to get to it.

I see the site is built by Alexa.
They have so bad spyware,
That Alexa toolbar got the sued and they lost and each person could get a $1000.00 from them that installed there software.
I know someine that had that on there PC and it took months to clean it up and each new version of Ad-aware found more from Alexa.

I loved Alexa when I was a newbie, and then started realizing they weren't my friend. I think they're part of RealNetworks now.

This isn't just Alexa, it's collaborative and I think it will eventually be very important in the future. I'm glad someone had the vision and passion to make this happen.
