Reading, Writing, and Resolve!

It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it. — Oscar Wilde

Local Poets Guild would like to invite poets in the Albuquerque community to commit to reading one book of poetry each week for all of 2012. Yep, 52 books. And we ask you to keep a log of what you read. Every 2-3 months we’ll post a list of some of the books that are being read, and then, at the end of the year, you can submit your list of 52 books of poetry to be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to a bookstore. This is an easy peasy fun new year’s resolution (and crucial if you want to improve your poetry). Plus, in March we’ll open our new reading room and archive so you can feel free to pop by and read our selections if you’re running short. More on that soon, but we already have donations from several sources. For now, let us know if you want to take on this challenge.

“The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.” — Mark Twain
