...to a writer's take on the current state of blogs and social media, a take which included a few comments about this blog. The comments were not exactly complimentary, but hey, here I am again. And here's the book that came in the mail today, a book I will likely begin reading tonight.*
Walter Benjamin: A Critical Life by Howard Eiland and Michael W. Jennings.
Blogs and other forms of social media are important to my writing life and I know I'm not alone in that. I'm especially grateful for blog posts by others that point to books, posts that explore lines of thinking, posts that engage with the world in playful ways, posts that make me look at things differently. And so on. So I went outside, placed the book on a can and took a few pics. This is what I do. I didn't put on a jacket. It's only -17 and it only took a few minutes. Talk about refreshing!
* February 21 - I read the first couple chapters last night and can't wait to get back to it. Well-written with lots of well-chosen quotes. An intriguing read so far.
