Novella Weekend: Book Two

Now I have finished my second book, a volume of poetry, and surprised myself by loving it. I almost never read poetry, so I have Peter (aka Dark Puss) to thank for giving me People on a Bridge by Wislawa Szymborska. (Imagine a line through that ‘l’, which makes it a ‘w’ sound… and the ‘w’ is a ‘v’ sound, so think Viswava. And I can’t tell you the joy I’m having saying Szymborska to myself – I don’t think I’ve ever heard such a satisfying surname.)

    Reading poetry is one of the things that I'm always meaning to do more of and never do. I have a little section of poetry books on my bookshelf that never get looked at.

    Can a book of poetry be a novella? I'm intrigued.

    Joanne – you're doing better than me; I don't even have the books on my shelves!

    Colin – no, not really… but Short Book Weekend sounded less intellectual ;)
