Saturday Good Reads
If you weren’t totally mesmerized by a congressman committing bad, bad public relations last week, you might have discovered there were some wonderful things being posted on the web. Like the excitement of opening a long-awaited book of poetry, of when all your good intentions blow up and you make a mess of things, or when a reader has a conniption fit because you killed a dog – in a novel, or simply a gentle breath. It was another good week online.
