i'm always a voracious reader (which is why i know words like voracious)... but i have been on a roll even for me.
i'm currently reading "extremely loud and incredibly close", and it is amazing. i keep calling kelly and reading her lines (which she hates), and cornering tyler and reading him pages (which he tolerates). it is so brilliant and witty and endearing and emotional and laugh out loud funny. it is also very inspiring to me as a writer- yes i call myself a writer now (which kelly tolerates)- because he writes in such an unorthodox way. it helps take the scariness out of writing by reminding you that really, there are no rules.
i also just got in the mail from amazon (my fav) the collected poems of emily dickenson. it is such a yummy book cover. i have also been calling kelly to read her lines out of that (which she only pretends to listen to). here is my favorite so far...
Did our Best Moment last-
'Twould supersede the Heaven-
A few- and they by Risk- procure-
So this sort- are not given-
Except as stimulants- in
Cases of Despair-
Or Stupor- The Reserve-
These Heavenly Moments are-
A Grant of the Divine-
That Certain as it Comes-
Withdraws- and leaves the dazzled Soul
In her unfurnished Rooms
