Saturday Rave: Last Essays of Elia by Charles Lamb.


Books think for me, wrote Charles Lamb in Detached Thoughts on Books and Reading.

Charles Lamb by William Hazlitt. (No, I didn't know Hazlitt was a painter, and a good one, either.)

Word To Use Today: think. This word comes from the Old English thencan.
