a quick note- i am currently reading poems by walt whitman. i can see why he was considered, well, a bit risque in his day. i want to say he published the first edition of 'leaves of grass' circa 1855 or so- and well, let's just say that more than a few well cultured ladies got titillated from reading poetry. i never knew. i don't think my eyebrows left the ceiling until i put the book down.
that's my summer reading right now- anyone else reading anything good?
