Check It Out

I went to the library again, but I have a good excuse, I’m celebrating National Library Week. From April 10th through the 15th make sure to go to your public library and return overdue books, pay any fines and as you are already there, check out some new books.

My recent finds were Die a Little by Megan Abbot, Kilbrack by Jamie O’Neill, Birth Marks by Sarah Dunant and Isn’t It Romantic: 100 Love Poems by Younger American Poets.

Other than that the weekend was super. I did go to yoga on Saturday and that evening we met up with my friend Ginger. We had a delicious dinner at a Greek restaurant and then we spent some quality time at Half Price Books.

Tonight’s poetry lines are for Scully whose favorite poet is T.S. Eliot.

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherised upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets.
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells

Excerpt from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. T.S. Eliot was born in 1888. He is one of the most distinguished literary figures of the 20th century. He won the 1948 Nobel Prize in Literature.
