God Is Not A Man.

It should be said: The WEOMAL says nothing that would lead anyone, should lead anyone, to believe god is a man, either. The book talks about people, from start to finish. Not God, or, lower case 'god'. It doesn't talk about god at all. It doesn't pretend to. It is an encyclopedia of myths and legend...

A library could be adorned with frequently updated eye catching ( to some extent, this is not Madison avenue advertising ) posters about books: books of quality - of special merit for...

Gargantua and Pantagruel

Just thought I'd mention it.

By Francois Rabelais. Haven't heard a mention of it in decades. Though it has sometimes been described as the beginning of the novel.
