Posted to What Are You Reading?

for christmas, i got three new books: con tiki by thor heyerdahl, a book of maxfield parrish's illustrations from magazines and books (compares and discusses his contempories as well (illustrators), and a book of louis leakey's memoirs from 32-57.

Right now, I'm reading Emily Dickinson collected poems

I held a jewel in my fingers
And went to sleep.
The day was warm, and winds were prosy;
I said: "'T will keep."

I woke and chid my honest fingers,--
The gem was gone;
And now an amethyst remembrance
Is all I own.
