One of my favorites from Leaves of Grass is Song of Myself: Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, (there are millions of suns left,) You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self. I can see how these two books work well together, Whitman is a very concise and precise author with fantastic word choice. One thing that's always stood out to me about good writers is how economical they are with words. I have so many books now, both physical and ebook that I wish I could just take a month off to read. I like audio books if Jeff and I are "reading" together, but I much prefer the act of reading, and creating the voice in my head.
