I'll complete this file when I've reorganized my books and audio cd's. If someone makes a nice bibtex file of these, the quotes can also be used in testing bibliographic references and citations. \starttabulate[|l|l|p|] \NC \bf file \NC \bf author \NC \bf source \NC \NR \HL %NC stork.tex \NC David F.

All Wards % books excell. % A Short History of Nearly Everything: I wish that I had the memory to remember this book % verbatim. % Chaos and Harmony: very nice and well written book, but the typography is rather bad: % quite visible inter-character spacing in a text that can be typeset quite well by \TeX. % The Universe in a Nutshell: a beautiful designed book, (companion of A Short History % of Time). % The World Without Us: A properly typeset, very readable book. Read it and you'll look at % the world around you differently (and a bit more freightened). % Dirt, The Erosion of Civilizations: one of those books that you buy immediately after % reading a few sentences. Also one of those books that every politician should read. % The Making of the Fittest: nice sample for color ans subsentence testing. A very % readable book but unfortunately it has inter-character spacing. % The Schwarzenegger letter was originally typeset at a width equivalent to 16.1cm in % a default ConTeXt setup. \stoptext
