Hm. I wonder if there's a series that could revolve around the question "What do you NOT read?"
Because I realized recently that, as a result of the internet, I might not ever read a certain pile of 20 books: THE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY! All twenty volumes!
Because when I need to look up a word, I just go to the internet!
Hm. On the other hand, I might yet dive into these books some day. Because just frolicking through the pages often generates fabulous projects!
I once did a series of poems based on whichever word Merriam-Webster (MW) emailed out as its "Word of the Day." I describe that process over HERE at Lantern Review. (Those poems are also available in my book I TAKE THEE, ENGLISH, FOR MY BELOVED.) I could see myself opening The Oxford at random for poem prompts -- why not? As with the MW poems, the structure allows the poet to transcend the limits of one's conscious imagination.
