I am currently reading Spoon River Anthology, by Edgar Lee Masters.

Small poems "written" from beyond the grave by the townspeople of the fictional Spoon River. Example:

Henry got me with child,
Knowing that I could not bring forth life
Without losing my own.
In my youth therefore I entered the portals of dust.
Traveler, it is believed in the village where I lived
That Henry loved me with a husband's love
But I proclaim from the dust
That he slew me to gratify his hatred.

I am reading An Ordinary Man, the autobiography of Paul Rusesabagina, subject of the film "Hotel Rwanda". Nicely written, I expect it to be a very quick read.

What else have people got goin' on?
