Florilegium (flori what?)

Below are two randomly chosen items from my personal florilegium, placed together.

Your task: Read these excerpts individually, together, and in different orders, keeping your mind open to new meaning that emerges as you do so. Refresh the page for a new selection.

  2. the Books That Fill You With Sudden, Inexplicable Curiosity, Not Easily Justified
