Kim Reads Books About Things

I like most books, particularly children's and YA. The fact that I am 21 does not and will never hinder this, and it shouldn't. A good book is a good book is a good book. Anyway. I'll read anything I can get my hands on if the mood suits me.

Spoon River Anthology

Spoon River Anthology - Edgar Lee Masters Had to film a play adapted from these poems/monologues this year, so once the whole thing was over I decided to check out the whole collection. And, indeed, there are quite a few great ones that didn't make it into the play. Though it is hard to separate the experience of the play from these poems, it is harder still to deny that the words are beautiful even without seeing them brought to life by talented actors and actresses. (My favorite of the poems is quoted on here, if you look at my favorite quotations.)
