For a bibliophile and possible hoarder like me, knowing that the Southern Festival of Books is always held the weekend closest to my birthday is the best reason to look forward to being a year older. This is practically three days of geeking out over books new and old, established and emerging authors and the opportunity to meet them, getting your books signed and geeking out some more. There are panels and discussions, readings and elbow-brushing over the book tables. And geeking out some more. I thought this would be a great opportunity to share a poem about loving, longing and living for books. And if you would like to share your favorite books, or have a suggestion for a poet or poem to feature here, let us know in the comments!
