Read-a-Thon Update & More

I wanted to provide you with an update on my read-a-thon success.  I read two poetry books--Carta Marina and More of Me Disappears--last weekend, which means I will be donating $10 to poets.org

If you read a book of poetry or more during the last read-a-thon, please let me know and leave me a link to your read-a-thon posting about the book, and I will increase my donation by $2 per book.


In other news, you may have missed some great interviews with the authors of When You Went Away and The Last Dickens.  They have been posted on D.C. Literature Examiner.  Check out my interview with Michael Baron, here and here, and with Matthew Pearl, here and here.  I've also got a great video-ful post of the Hilda Stern Cohen reading.

That's awesome! Sorry, no poetry books read by me. Heck, I didn't even finish a book during the Read-a-Thon. I'll go hang my head in shame now...

You should hang you head in shame...at least for not reading poetry during read-a-thon!

Congratulations on a successful read-a-thon and your fund raising efforts.

That's awesome Serena! I wish I had gotten more reading done but that's ok.

I sure hope Charlee gets back to his old self too. It's hard to see them not happy like they used to be. Breaks my heart.

Thanks for posting my giveaway :)

You do so much to support poetry already but I'm sure they are glad for the donation!
