Hello, all!

I created a Geeklist to document great moments in novels and stories, generally selected because of the quality of the writing. It is admittedly purely subjective, and not posted to spur debate on their merit, but more to appreciate - and to play, of course.

It is also a GeekList for "What's that Book," where people can try to name the book from just reading the section of text.

Anyone is welcome to add a post, but it should just consist of text from a novel/play/story/etc that you find particularly lovely, interesting, or horrifying, as your taste may move you.

Disclaimer: I believe all of these excerpts are covered under Fair Use, as tiny excerpts of full novels/plays/etc, and are presented for critical/educational purposes as admirable examples of writing. I intend to identify all excerpts within a month or two after posting, assuming someone doesn't identify them first. If anybody thinks I'm wrong and there's a problem with posting them, let me know via geekmail.
