Also re. poetry: if you're in a Sinophilic mood, you may derive some hours' amusement on Mountain Songs, an online collection of Chinese poetry having anything to do with mountains (Warning: front page has sound). They obligingly allow you to search poems not only by title and author, but also by mountain and temple, if such names mean anything to you. A nice reference, though I think the translations could have a little more vim. Also, Li Po seems to be romanized as Li Bai these days.
