Linkity is trying to ignore the gently falling (again) snow

My usual mobile feed reader, gReader Pro, went wonky on me last weekend and wouldn’t connect to Feedly anymore. I switched to the Feedly Reader, which is ok, except… I keep making some motion that marks chunks of my feed as read and I can’t figure out how to turn that off. ARGH.

Reading Update
Ask Me: 100 Essential Poems of William Stafford by William Stafford (Kim Stafford, ed). I had to jot down many phrases and entire poems in my notebook whilst reading this, and I’ve already made an art journal page for some of them…
Incredible Good Fortune: New Poems by Ursula K Le Guin. This was really mixed for me – I desperately wanted to love all of the poems, but only a few resonated with me.
Humans Wanted, edited by Vivian Caethe. Probably 2.5 stars. As with most collections, there were good stories and not-so-good stories. However, I don’t feel as if the book managed to capture the essence or magic of the “humans are so weird, but in a good way” post on tumblr. So if that’s what you’re hoping for….. 🙁

Reading Update
Swan: Poems and Prose Poems by Mary Oliver. This one had a couple of things I quite liked, but overall it didn’t resonate that much with me.
Journal Sparks: Fire Up Your Creativity with Spontaneous Art, Wild Writing, and Inventive Thinking by Emily K Neuburger. Very good collection of creative journaling ideas for those times when you need some inspiration. It also includes a section on making your own simple journals, plus has some stickers and artsy paper to use in your own creative journal.
Dare to Sketch: A Guide to Drawing on the Go by Felix Scheinberger. Ok overview of drawing basics with particular tips for urban sketchers. Definitely feels like a variation of other things I’ve read before.
Footnotes from the World’s Greatest Bookstores: True Tales and Lost Moments from Book Buyers, Booksellers, and Book Lovers by Bob Eckstein. A lovely little book highlighting 75 bookstores from around the world, with a watercolor painting and anecdote for each. This is one I’m perfectly fine with reading from the library and not owning.
