A few interesting posts I’ve stumbled on in the past week include:
Welcome to National Poetry Month
Posted by Savvy Verse & Wit
Yesterday I posted a few poem-a-day e-mails hosted by several different websites, but Savvy Verse & Wit takes National Poetry Month coverage to a whole different level. This week she posted a blog tour, so you can see which blogs are showcasing poets and poetry on every day of the month. For example, on April 9, Rhapsody in Books will feature W.B. Yeats and Literate Housewife will blog about Alan Ginsburg. Look out for discussion of contemporary poetry on Savvy.
Book Plant Potters: A DIY Project
Posted by Entomology of a Bookworm
Alright, booklovers, I can understand if you’re unwilling to rip apart a hardback in the service of a nifty project. But still: think of all those books in the giveaway box at your local bookstore! Recycle them into plant potters—sounds like a great springtime activity to me.
Kurt Vonnegut Reads from Slaughterhouse-Five
Posted by Open Culture
Vonnegut fans will definitely want to check out this post, which links to an online recording of the author reading from Slaughterhouse-Five. (I guess you probably figured that out from the title of the blog post!) Open Culture also provides a link to Vonnegut’s 1962 Sci-Fi story, “2BR02B.” This reminds me: Has anyone had a chance to read Look at the Birdie?
