After subscribing to Writer's Almanac I read a poem a day and writer's bios. Then, during a spirited time, I scaled back greatly, but visited the library stacks and reading birthday writer's poems, too, down the 800s away from Psychology. I started reading a few poems a day and checked out several books of poetry a week.
I <3 Poetry and can't live without it.
