Sites to see.

The blog challenge at Two Peas today is to list a few of your favorite websites, so here goes:

Lileks.com: The website of James Lileks, a columnist for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Lileks is a lover of all things ephemeral, and has several sections of the site devoted to old cookbooks, old matchbooks, old comic strips, old photos, old ads...it's a history-lover's dream, complete with witty comments. Check out the Institute of Official Cheer, featuring the Gallery of Regrettable Food.

Prints and Photographs Reading Room at the Library of Congress site. I could spend hours looking at the past on this site. Plus, you can order prints for yourself!

American Memory
collection, also at the Library of Congress site. I've barely stuck my toe into these waters--tons of pictures and documents and films to look at.

Threadbared:This site just makes me happy. I love smart-alecky comments.

The Garden Path: Lots and lots of thumbnail references about various herbs, flowers, and types of gardens.

Rotten Tomatoes: This is where I go to see if a movie is worth my time! I love reading the reviews.

I can't believe my blog didn't make your top 5. :)

I love exploring web sites I've never heard of. I just got a magazine in the mail that had an entire article on the staff's favorite web sites. I have it marked for a future blog post but keep forgetting to bring the magazine upstairs.
