Quick updates

...both essential, but in different ways.

  • Guys Lit Wire (led by the ever-awesome Colleen Mondor) has just announced the school for this year's book drive. Read all the details, and give these kids some books! (Self-indulgent side note: after years of reading the Post regularly, despite being nowhere near a Washingtonian, I was actually familiar with Ballou before GLW chose it -- thanks to articles like this one. Isn't it great that even outsider's are familiar with DC's "worst high school in the city"?)
  • Kelly Fineman, the inspiration for my Jane Eyre-athon efforts, is now blogging her way through Emma. If you're not already subscribed to Writing & Ruminating, get on it.
(Post pic: taken along Mass Ave in Cambridge. Allowable use of an adverb? Your call.)

Awesome. Of course I had to go back and read the entire archive.

I am in love with that towing sign. And thanks for the shout-out!
