The word of the day on is neoteric. The illustrative quote is:

Electronic books, they say, are asking them to make a mental transition — to veer from their ingrained appreciation for the printed books that fill our nation’s more than 120,000 public, academic and special interest libraries — to depend on a neoteric gizmo that disrupts the sacred union between man and book.

–Charlotte Moore, “Bedtime for binderies?” Austin American Statesman, July 28, 2000 [ of the Day]

They seem to be running out of inspiration as neoteric was also word of the day on September 27, 2001.
