This is how I want the "currently reading" widget to work: When I add a new start date to a book I've already read, I want it to show up along with the rest of the books I am currently reading. I want it to know automatically that if there is a start date with no finish date, that the book is currently being read, even if the status of the book is READ, because isn't start date with no finish date the same as "currently reading"?
On another note, I started my annual re-read list from the top last night. I started April Lady and then immediately fell asleep listening. Good thing it is a re-read and I don't feel completed to rewind and start again. Also good thing that April Lady is not one of my most favoritest (yes, note the double superlative) Georgettes, because then I would be compelled to start again so as not to miss a word of the story.
So, I'm not sure if I've really talked about it on here but if you follow me on Twitter you've probably seen it, but basically I love poetry. I'm a huge poetry lover. Anyway, I found out about this author through Tumblr, and by extension Twitter, and even on those sites, a lot of the words that this author wrote spoke to be deeply--as a person of color, as a woman, as a woman of color, pain and loss, love. A lot of the poems I read I found myself nodding furiously and just agreeing with.
While this book does contain a lot of her work from online, there are still that are new and weren't posted online. And even if it was just a compilation of her online work, I'd still consider reading it because of just how lovely and deep her words went for me personally.
This was a quick read; most of the poems are kind of short and don't go on for too long. This is not a bad thing, and I love how the author is able to get the point across with the lines/words that are used.
I could go on and on why I like this book of poetry. I really could. I seriously recommend reading.
