Literary Silver Linings, Announcements, and “Anna Karenina”

22 Jun

Obviously, I have not been as good about posting as I had hoped to be. But never fear! I’m already planning in the fall for a revamp with theme months! In September you can all look forward to a Young Adult month, complete with all of your favorite reads from adolescence (and maybe some new gems!).

If you’re looking to contribute to a YA fiction month, or have ideas for other months, feel free to check out the “Want to Contribute?” page.

In the meantime, I leave you all with the new “Anna Karenina” trailer. I think it looks promising, if not totally over-the-top. What do you all think?


“The Stones” by Sylvia Plath

25 Apr

This is Sylvia Plath reading her poem “The Stones” in 1962. Because sometimes on Wednesdays you need to hear some beautiful poetry.


So I didn’t have the St. Patrick’s Day post ready that I had hoped. I guess you’ll just have to settle for Yeats.

17 Mar

William Butler Yeats reading his poem “The Lake Isle of Innisfree.” Get in touch with your inner Irish poet. It’s some sort of Irish holiday today.

It’s even better if you listen while drinking Guinness, of course.
