Reading Room

relax and reflect on old and new hog lore

Reading Room at Porkopolis.org

Root, read and redeem… Our Reading Room has useful materials for making the web less of a Paris and more of a Porkopolis.

Here you have old and new hog lore from above and below the fold, gathered up, rectified and arranged in alternate streaks of fat and lean.

The works presented here are for the benefit of reflective hogs and humans, so that you may occasionally resign from the herd, relax and think for yourself.
