Books: The Voynich Manuscript Goes Online A 15th/16th century book either written in nonsense or written in a code so tough to crack that even professional cryptographers can't do it. Your pick. Either way, it's now been digitised and put online.
Books: New York Times' List of 100 Notable Books of 2011 [NYTimes] Almost all of them sound awful, frankly.
