Hello There

Just a quick post to say, "Hi!" and give you another picture from the archives.

Had myself a little conundrum the other day. I remember reading somewhere about a guy from the 19th century who was believed to be the last man to have read all books ever printed. I quickly remembered him being British. As I searched more and tried drill down into the depths of my memory, I became convinced that he had three names (first, middle, last) by which he was known.

A little while longer and I stumbled across your Link of the Day. Though his Wikipedia entry doesn't repeat that claim, John Stuart Mill sounds like a good candidate. Don't you think? I figure anyone who started reading in Greek and Latin as a child and went mad by twenty-one due to too much information has got to be in the running for having read a whole bunch.

Let me know what you think.
