Under the Eucalyptus tree

I bought the Eucalyptus iPhone App the other day (for the price of a single paperback book) and suddenly am able to search, download and read everything in the Gutenberg archive. It’s simply wonderful — no other word for it. The text is eminently readable and the interface delightfully simple. As is my wont at this time of year, I’m re-reading Ulysses. But this year instead of lugging around a thick volume, it’s in my shirt pocket. Magical!
