resisted temptation at the library book sale. But the last day is the free day. And I went back. For literature!* Poetry!** And, OK, a Mandy Patinkin CD.

*Jose Saramago, Susan Sontag, May Sarton, William Styron
**Kay Ryan, Lisel Mueller, Tess Gallager, Richard Howard, Reginald Gibbons
***Plus Jane Fonda, Paul Dano, Rachel Weisz, and a fabulous array of other humans! Kudos to Sumi Jo and Paloma Faith for being themselves! And fearless!
