Because who doesn't wonder what Donald Judd read (or didn't read), the Judd Foundation has launched a cool online toy: An accounting of the 13,004 books in Donald Judd's Marfa library (10,718 of them unique with the rest being duplicates). A Judd Foundation press release says that the project took 3,500 hours to complete. (The library is part of 'The Block' in downtown Marfa.)

3500 hours? Wish I was billing for that project. What the hell took so long? That's 3.7 books an hour. Did they hire someone who can't type?

Well, ahem, cataloging a library is more than typing up a list.
