Emily Dickinson On Reading

"If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire could ever warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off I know that is poetry." You know it's been a long time since a book made me feel like as if the top of my head were taken off. Weeks go by and I sense the vacuum a truly absorbing, all encompassing book usually fills.

Tell me now, what have you read recently that you want to tell the world about? Which is the book you regard as poetry? Do tell, because there is nothing quite like a recommendation from a friend is there?
