There's been a lot of work in my life as of late. I even went to the Midwest for a conference and experienced what Milwaukee had to offer. Travel, and the subsequent lack of sleep, require a great deal of recovery for me. Though I was surrounded by fellow high-functioning introverts at the marketing conference, being "on" for ten to twelve hours a day is taxing. And then the work that you come back to... oh the work!
Needless to say, there haven't been any projects tackled lately. There's only been much in the way of rest and the way of reading. I figured now was a perfect time to share what I've been enjoying so you can fill up your e-reader, visit your local bookstore, or the one closest to my heart, your local library.

I'm on Jane Yolen's New Poem a Day email list and am obsessed! Here's a wonderful collection of her magical poetry.
Loved, loved, loved this beautifully written, complex take on the Snow White story.
Such a fantastic read! Nicola Griffith made seventh-century Britain come alive, and I want more stories of Hild. I can't wait for her next installment.
Ummm... my favorite childhood film, my obsession with the Goblin King, my love of all things magical finally laid out in book form? Yes please!
My favorite author's work illustrated by one of my favorite modern artists. Need I say more? I will. They're beautiful in every way.
Haunting and gorgeous, even if you don't usually go for graphic novels, go for this.
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
