Your post inspired me to post a photo of my own bedside stack.

Ooh, I really do want to read Radi os at some point, hope you'll post what you think. And it makes me bizarrely happy to see that pink Bishop, so recently on my own shelf, in your room. Now I want to send everyone books so they'll take pictures of them in their rooms. Well, maybe not everyone--but there are a few blogger bedrooms I wouldn't mind a glimpse of. [grin]

Em, that is so sweet. I thought you might like it. (wink)

Radi Os is quite a project. I am not sure the poetry speaks to me especially deeply. It is more interesting, then moving or inspiring, if that makes sense, if you know what I mean.
