Recently Reading...

Visiting the library is a weekly occurrence at our house.
Sometimes, even more than weekly.

Let's just say, the librarians know us by name.
And sometimes cringe when they see the bags full of books we're returning.

(I'd insert a picture here of the mountain(s) of books that we have out right now,
if only I could track them all down.
Looks like a scavenger hunt will be in order before our next visit.)

Since I've been seriously focusing on developing my writing,
I've also been reading a lot of poetry.

Did you know that reading other poets' work
helps you write better poetry?
It's true.  And eminently enjoyable as well.

I ran across a great collection I wanted to share with you.

The Household Gods (CSU Poetry Series) (CSU Poetry Series) (CSU Poetry Series)

The Household Gods by Daniel Bourne

Not only are the poems fantastic,
but the poet is from a little town not far from where I live.

It's just a little bit inspiring.

You should check it out!
