A book from every state in the Union.

Cate’s Book Nut Hut has a list of 50 books, one from each state. The Sound and the Fury is the book listed for Mississippi. If I were making such a list, and were choosing a Faulkner novel to represent MS, I would go with  Absalom, Absalom!

Cate plans to review a book from each state during 2014. What a fabulous idea.

This is so good I have to share it.

Pleiades_HART

I discovered this poem in my reader earlier today, and it grabbed me. The excerpt below is the first stanza; you can read the whole thing at Scholars and Rogues. “On High Places Lit By Stars,” by Kathryn Errickson. (Image: Pleiades by Phil Hart.)

This is where I do my best
thinking:     seven feet 
off the ground    
on the roof of a dented 
dodge;    one story 
up from doorsteps on silver-
coated tar;   leaning out 
windows with wind blowing
 the smell of growth 
                        and damp 
                                    and something else I don't have a name for.

Happy Thanksgiving
