I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.
One week from today, I'm going to see Tracy K. Smith give a reading. That's not the breaking news - I've been planning it for months.
The news is, today she was named the new U.S. Poet Laureate. I was excited before. Now I'm on Cloud 9.
I'm also in the process of reading both "Life on Mars" and "Ordinary Light." Both so, so good.
