For me, it's as close to my TV-watching chair as possible. Then when the TV irritates me--I'm easily irritated--I have something to dip into. A quick dose of Ogden Nash and I'm all smiles again. I tend to buy poetry anthologies rather than single author works. I do the same with music--although the whole iPod single track purchases has rather changed that. Do you think the day will ever come when we buy poetry by the poem?
