Find a review of Specimen Days HERE.

You can find a reading guide on Leaves of Grass HERE.

If you are interested in being a member of this blog so that you can write your own posts about the books we read, let me know at goldennib at Comcast dot net or in the comments and I will add you.

I have finished Specimen Days and I am now trying to get through Leaves of Grass (first edition – because it’s the shortest.)

Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman

I got my copy of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman yesterday so I can follow Jenn's suggestion and read it along with Specimen Days.

Specimen Days by Michael Cunningham

Michael Cunningham wrote The Hours. Specimen Days is his second book. Where The Hours highlighted Virginia Wolf, Specimen Days includes Walt Whitman. The novel takes place in New York City and covers three time periods. It has received excellent reviews. I bought my book today at Barnes and Noble. They have it in stock in paperback. I will be reading it through once for pleasure and then reading again for this blog. That should cover the month of October. November is for discussion, although comments along the way will be welcome.
