Saturday Good Reads



An abandoned subway station in New York City. The Olympics. Billy Coffey asks “What’s your sign?” Maureen Doallas writes poems – from titles on book spines (and they are great poems). And did you ever consider that the Biblical character of Rahab had a job?

It was another good week for good stuff on the internet.

Thank you for that shout-out. I'm blushing. (Still have lots of books left. That prompt is fun, so I might give it another go.)

Loved the NYC subway photos.

Have a great weekend.
