Today I was at work ordering some books for the library when I noticed that I was ordering some books by Elizabeth Bishop. There was poetry and prose. Some of it I skipped over pretty easily but some of it I was curious about so on my lunch break I went up the 11th floor where the literature (and children's literature) is. It's my favorite floor. I browsed down to Elizabeth Bishop's books and sat down on the floor, right in the aisle, and thumbed through a few. I also picked up another book by someone else (another author whose name begins with 'B'). Before I knew it 10 or 15 minutes had passed me. I picked up my pile and carried them down the stairs to check them out. I am really looking forward to reading them. I think they are mostly poetry, prose, and short stories. Things that are easy to read in small doses which is what I need these days since I don't seem to have a lot of concentration or a lot of time.
I am hoping that the reading will inspire me to write more. We'll see if it works.
