I hope you don't mind, but "peruse" means "read thoroughly or carefully" - probably not what you had in mind. Sorry to be commenting something that trivial, I enjoy your blog tremendously and try to apply what I can to my presentations. Thank you for all your time and effort!

m64 - you're right. I'd often seen, and personally used, peruse in the opposite (i.e. wrong) context.

Dictionary.com have an addendum in the 'usage note' that states "...Sometimes people use it to mean "to glance over, skim," as in I only had a moment to peruse the manual quickly, but this usage is widely considered an error. In a 1988 survey, 66 percent of the Panel found it unacceptable, and in 1999, 58 percent still rejected it."

I've had a quick view to the site and seems all 'aronud the US'. No international references?
