I don’t know how it happened, my not blogging this week. I fell into a flurry of books these past few days. Since Tuesday I’ve read a book each day. I don’t remember a thing before Tuesday…
It all started with the BRILLIANT T.S. Elliot.
1. Murder in the Cathedral – T.S. Elliot
2. The Name of this Book is Secret – Pseudonymous Bosch
3. The Monster Loves Its Labyrinth – Charles Simic (poetry)
4. The Waste Land and Other Poems – T.S. Elliot (poetry)
5. Magyk – Angie Sage
6. Fingersmith – Sarah Waters
And then some side-reading into Memory’s Library by Jennifer Summit (brilliant), Library: An Unquiet History by Matthew Battles (brilliant), The Cistercians by Stephen Tobin, and Rilke’s collected poetry.
My mind, my eyes…are fried.
I promise to put aside these books for at least tonight, and to reemerge with bloggarificness. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I do have one new fact to share:
Ever wondered how many new books the Library of Congress adds to its shelves each year? 7,000.
I hope you’re all well!!! 🙂
