A short walk in a southern wood


So - I'm still living in the busy weeks I referred to in my last post - but here's an update:
1) I finished Father and Sons and The Book of Other People. Reviews and quotes for those two are coming soon.
2) I'm currently reading The Little Red Writing Book and Mildred Pierce.
3) I've borrowed The Orchard Keeper by Cormac McCarthy from the library but this intervenes with my McCarthy-reading 5 Year Plan so I'm debating whether or not I should jump into it straight away (the beautiful first sentence is so tempting).
4) I'm becoming increasingly interested in the works of Ron Padgett, an American Poet.
5) I'm a tad concerned about whether I've been grammatically correct in my previous posts (I've picked up an annoying habit of dropping pronouns).

That is all for the moment. I'm working very hard on my Personal Project, and will forever be in debt to the LOTR soundtracks for helping me through this strenuous journey.
