Visual word pictures

I'm reading Spook Country by William Gibson. He has always been good at tight, descriptive phrases. One that caught my eye was where he described a woman's clothing as being a "Bladerunner Soccer Mom."

I'm a big etext fan, Baen books has an excellent selection, including a lot of free etext. I use my Palm PDA, but I'm looking at the Kindle as another etext reader.
