Just realized I've been spamming Twitter/insta w/ my !!!! about this book but I forgot Litsy! THis is just DELICIOUS & accessible & fascinating, the freshest but most lucid take on modern language change I've ever seen.

I'm reading 2 delightful short books at the moment and it's nice. It's really nice, and restful.
(Also reading a Shakespeare history play and mideast spy history and fanfiction, because i cannot help myself. But having short sweet books is a wonderful break in all this.)

Crazeedi I loved you tagged book! It was just delightful! 4mo

This is from yesterday but I love this anthology already! I remember this one from school. This sonnet was written about (and is somewhere inscribed near) the statue of liberty. #Poemsbeforephones #poetry

I didn't really read #poemsbeforephones today, but it's been a reluctant slightly midlife crisis-y morning because I'm turning 40!

I read a bunch of poems from my Galway Kinnell collection this AM but none are really quotable ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So here's the last of the Neruda instead!

Wow, finished this collection! There were a lot of gems. It's "early" Neruda so I'll have to look up more of his work later.

OK, a decision has to be made, and I'm making it for my own good.
Zafon, you have a gift, but now is not the time for me to appreciate it. I just. there's too much to read.

I'm initiating a new hashtag to knock some sense into my completionist soul. Bailed on 2 books already this year! This is not failure! This is progress!
#WhatSoProudlyWeBailed

Soubhiville I agree! Even starting a book and finding you don‘t like it is still taking it off your TBR! Progress! 9mo
DGRachel Love that hashtag! 9mo
merelybookish Nice! One way I transitioned to a better bailer is by skinning. I'll read the end of chapters and the ending. Made me feel less guilty at first. 9mo
