What book would you embed?

I’m probably late to this development, but I just read over the at the DUKE CIT blog that you can embed select works from the Google Books collection right into a blog post or webpage. How wild! So, I asked myself the question, what book would I embed in the bava? And I thought and searched hard, and then it hit me like a diamond through the forehead: Herman Melville’s Piazza Tales, but even more specifically: “Benito Cereno.”
