Joules’ Weekly Reading: Poetry Magazine, Better For It, and the Mini Hayden

Given my love of literature and my penchant for poetry, I’ve finally decided that it’s high time I subscribe to Poetry Magazine, the oldest monthly-magazine devoted to verse. It’s published by the Poetry Foundation, which is based in Chicago, and they’ve done a lot for both the literary community here and at large. I’m hoping that reading other poets will inspire me to branch out with my own work. We’ll see how it goes.

Speaking of reading, that’s been my main activity for the past week. We spent nearly all of last weekend in front of the fire reading. I plowed through My Life on the Road, which I decided to pick up thanks to Our Shared Shelf, and then got back to working my way through Atlas Shrugged. When I wasn’t doing that, I was hitting the gym hard. We’ve only got a few weeks left until we head to the Caymans, and we’re trying to make them count!

Have a lovely weekend.
