Got a group of lit-minded friends who love whaling? Why not join the Moby Dick Big Read?

And if you need a soundtrack for your reading, you could always go with the new Philip Glass production.

Unfortunately, you can't go around digging through the archives of Kim Video for any good listening.

But you could always try repurposing your current collection into works of art.

And if you have to do so in the buff, more power to you.

In fact, you'd be riding a bit of a literary trend, should you have the inclination.

Even then, you wouldn't be embroiled in as much controversy as Salman Rushdie at the moment.

So you can relax and wander the streets of Melbourne, looking for a good book to pick up.
