I found this good-condition hardcover at the Book Cellar, and thought it looked amusing: lots of pig-themed puns, and some actual Latin (with pig-influenced translations, such as "In vino veritas" meaning "In swine the truth"). "Oedipork Rex", for example, and "Pigmalion", and "Harriet Beecher Sow" (who wrote "Oinkle Tom's Cabin"), "Hoggy Carmichael", and - of course - Hamlet... Oh, and "Lizzie Boarden"!

What a fun surprise! I've been traveling for work since Sunday and have til Friday of city hopping then have a wedding while I'm in the area. Think I also have a little cold - all not so much fun so finding the book cheered me up and will give me something to do while traveling.

I will continue the trend and release it some place in the wild. I will say I took a plane ride to get up here so the book will be released closer to home - where that is you will just have to wait and see...
