It's colder than normal, and we had an inch or two of snow today. That's not much, considering what people are experiencing in Erie Pennsylvania right now: five feet and more coming.
I've stayed in and slept. I've also tried to remember the books I have read this year. So many of them were audiobooks, since I have some eye problems and save my "serious reading" for school.
But I did read a few books on Jessica Powers for my panel in New York last April, and many articles and chapters on the poetry of Stevie Smith, as well as the large book of her poems, for the seminar in West Chester in June.
Just recently, I read three of the five books I planned to read - the ones we were assigned when we went away to college fifty years ago:
Erich Fromm The Art of Loving
Carl Jung The Undiscovered Self
Mortimer Adler How to Read a Book ( I am on page 30 of 200 pages right now!)
I hope to talk about them at length in another entry.
The audiobooks were generally murder mysteries and thrillers: my escape reading:
I tend to get on one author and read everything I can of that person.
