Reading Flannery

I'm having a blast reading the letters of Flannery O'Connor in The Habit of Being. It is so good that, only 1/4 through it, I declared to hubby that I was sick of copying down my favorite quotes and needed to own this book. (I do not buy many books.) Being the amazingly sweet and supportive person that he is, he ordered it from amazon that very evening.

I predict that I will be sharing a lot of nuggets with you here. And now I present today's thought-provoking observation:

"I think it must be easier on the nerves to publish poetry because it is not generally misunderstood as it is not generally read."
