I just retired Hobbled Pegasus from the ULTB list; this bibliography of poetry in the era of Cromwell has at least a start on the readership it deserves. I've spent many hours casually leafing through its pages, entranced by its inexplicable charm, and apparently someone else liked it enough to have it on his shelf.

What do we do when we retire an ULTB? Should we mark it now RIP? Should we hold a wake? Perhaps we my have a BLT at the wake or a good stiff G & T??

Not a wake. After all, the book has just doubled its presence in LT. How about a graduation ceremony? Or if you're really into G&Ts, a passing out ceremony.

I recently had to retire (or perhaps promote, following TallyDi) two books, The archaeology of Islam in sub-Saharan Africa and The human tradition in American labor history.

Searching for ultb in the box on our group page finds the following users who also have newly graduated selections:

bernsad - The Companion to Roses
bertilak - Oliver Cromwell
KCGordon - Companion Dictionary of the Bible and Gleanings from Long Ago
reading_fox - Shorthand, Pitman's: New Era, Beijing and Shanghai: China's Hottest Cities, Knock Down/Bonecrack (Duo), and Mithai

I'm not sure I got the touchstones right on all of those. And some seem not to display despite showing up in the right hand column as I write the message.

Thanks eromsted, I've just updated my roses to reflect their new status.
