Hello, everyone. I am looking forward to participating in my first reading challenge with all of you, some of whom I know from ModPo. I live in the Dallas area with a current stack of books totaling some 3,500 pages (just summed them up) that I’m looking forward to reading. I hope to reach the goal of 2,018, not 3,500! My interests include literature of all sorts, including (of course) poetry, art, music (especially opera and classical) and theatre. Now that I’ve retired from an intense career in finance & accounting, I’ve had the pleasure of throwing myself into these activities that I could only pine for before then.
Daniela has kindly sent me a book named “Failure” to read. She assures me that this is not an expectation of my performance in the challenge! Actually, it’s one of a series of books documenting major themes in contemporary art. Right up my alley. I see from the list of artists surveyed that there are some who will be new to me, which is great. Here’s the coolest name of all: “International Necronautical Society.” Sounds like a poem title!
