50 Books Into 2010

Made it to 50 books in 2010 by the end of March! A pretty steady pace on the reading. I have moved away from the bodice-rippers and towards essay & short story collections, as well as books that presaged their movie counterparts. For April, I see a great deal of poetry. But, the list for March:

I am impressed. But I am also looking for you email account, or at least if you like poetry, check out my blog http//
I wrote poetry when I was a teenager and then I stopped until about 4 years ago and there is no lookng back. My blog is the raw words, I have actually made two small volumes of the best, where I changed some of the words and cleaned it up together with some photos. Feel free to take a peak!
PS Funnily enough I am also a librarian, but doesn't work as such.
