I'm gonna sit right down and not write a bunch of letters

My lipogrammatic* reviews of six of my favorite books are online today at The Week. Check it on out.

*Lipogrammatic = avoiding one or more letters of the alphabet. More examples here.

Funny, I was just thinking about A Humument the other day. I had no idea there was a paperback version, or that there were multiple editions. I just own a couple of pages of the original hardback.

Yeah, each edition replaces some of the pages of the previous edition. I think his intent was to keep at it until every page was different, but I don't know if he's still on pace for that.

I'm just happy to see it's back in print in the U.S.! Last I saw, it was only available in the U.K.
