One of my favorite book organizational innovations is a shelf of favorite rereads, collected in one place for convenience: Jane Austen, Barbara Pym, Nick Hornby’s book essays for The Believer, I Capture the Castle, The Brontes Went to Woolworths, May Sarton’s Journals, Laurie Colwin’s food writing. But lately, as I’ve been exploring Detroit’s used bookstores, I’ve started collecting some old favorites from my late teens and early twenties. I don’t really have room for more books unless I buy more shelves, and I certainly don’t have room for those, but that isn’t going to stop me.

For my National Poetry Project, I’m playing along with the poetry calendar created by Margaret and Molly.
