Book Finished: Letters to a Young Poet

I finished my first book as part of the June Read-a-thon: Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke! It was a bit of a struggle, and I don’t especially like the translation I had (by M.D. Herter Norton), but there were some moments of joy from lovely language that I’ve quoted on my Tumblr—you can read those here.

It fulfilled a prompt off the Treesofreverie Prompts & Challenges list: “Read a book you’ve had lying around unfinished”.

Now, I’m working on Faces at the Bottom of the Well by Derrick Bell for the prompt “Read a book you’ve been meaning to read”.
