I have been reading tangentially about Jose Luis Borges having conceived of the Internet long before such a thing existed. As a writer, bibliophile and librarian, I guess his imaginings could lead there in a meaningful way. I finally borrowed his Labyrinths from the local library, and found a cool link to the world of Borges - see links. My bibliophile dream is for the Internet to become even more of a library, with academic sites somehow demarcated from blog sites. Can someone arrange this, please?

Still, the marigold wonders nervously:
What is the correct pronunciation of BORGES?


  1. The correct pronounciation for Borges in Spanish sounds a lot like English Borhes.

  2. Thanks. That makes sense, but is not commonly said "Borjess" in English?
