Did you know you can search for online texts of books and then hit the <ctrl><f> key and it will let you search for specific words, so that you can explore the text of a book and find when it talks about particular topics or words??? Cool Stuff!!! Thanks Lisa Huff for the heads up on how to do that!

an interesting way to combine wordle with pictures!
