Saturday Show and Tell - a showcase of things each week that lit up my brain and fired my imagination. Enjoy!
I also ordered a hard copy that includes Catherynne Valente's The Melancholy of Mechagirl (the original poem, not the collection of works) because I have a goal of owning everything that woman puts on paper. I'd collect her grocery lists. You scoff, but she sometimes tweets her food, and even it is above and beyond my reality.
Similar to what I attempt here each Saturday, The Paris Review does on Fridays with interesting and noteworthy things their staff are reading or watching.
I don't think there's been a Friday yet when I haven't made an "ooooh!" noise and archived a title for later reading (or owning). If you have difficulty finding your next book, this might help. This week's Exclamation Of Coveting was aimed at the Ted Hughes Bestiary, which sounds magnificent. I'll let you know!
COMING SOON! -
Boys will be Boys but Girls will be Queens in Alice's Adventures!
I am hopeful you will take the time to read it and give it feedback on blogs or Goodreads or wherever. Zoetic Press is a powerful ally for emerging writers, and your support with purchases and reviews makes all the difference in their staying afloat.
