Sleepy Weekend

I feel like I’ve been in a fog all weekend. Unfortunately my allergies were acting up so I had to take some medicine and well there goes my whole weekend. That’s what I get for cleaning house – ha,ha.

I did manage to make a dent in my reading of Billy Boyle by James R. Benn. The hero is sometimes charming but then other times he seems a bit naive. Still the book is holding my interest so that’s good.

When I wanted something a bit different I turned to Tin House. I’ve read one story, A Shadow Table by Alice Fulton, which I really liked, I’ve read some of the poetry, and I look forward to reading the interview with poet Frank Bidart later. Thanks to Stefanie, who had a giveaway for his chapbook sometime ago, I got to read some of his poetry. Did you know he was the first poet to have a chapbook, Music Like Dirt, become a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize?

Anyway, hope everyone has a great start to the week.
