 Reading Wednesday! I am reading the Selected Writings of Guillaume Apollinaire in the morning. There are a few bits of essays in the back, but mostly it is his poetry, in French, with a translation on the facing page. I don't think the translations are all that good, frankly, But I am doing okay on reading them in French with a bit of assist from the translation. Apollinaire's poetry is not exactly easy, but he uses pretty easy language, so that helps.  I read then out loud, because--poetry!


Before bed I am rereading C J Cherryh's Visitor, the book in the Foreigner series that precedes the new one on order from B&N. Read the one before that last week. Wanted to get back into the story before I leap on the new one!
