Not sure what started me on this Emily Dickinson kick, but here is a take from her on reading:
If I read a book [and] it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only way I know. Is there any other way. – Emily Dickinson
Wishing you some cold-body reading this weekend!
