I completed the first of the three mini-projects postulated by my favorite local library (the Kansas City Public Library KCPL) for National Library Week. This morning I responded to a call from the Facebook page for KCPL to post my three favorite last books on their wall to receive recommendations of what else I might like to read, and where I might find it at KCPL. I reviewed my recently read stats at GoodReads and decided upon The Lions of al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay; Blackout/All Clear by Connie Willis; and, Stormed Fortress by Janny Wurts (further implying the entire Wars of Light and Shadow series). I received back a recommendation for The Wise Man’s Fear which I read last month.
The next mini-project intrigues me, both as an amateur photography and as a former poet (albeit decades ago). I plan to scan my book titles (several hundred in house currently) to craft a poem both visually and title-cally. Since my poetic muscles atrophied years ago, I anticipate it will take a day or two to polish my book title poem.
I’ll save the third mini-project for later in the week. Writing my autobiography implies heavy posteric meaning. Or perhaps I should turn tragedy (or at the least mediocre boringness) into comedy?
