two things related only by the colour of their logos

Pink-logo'd thing #1: Fiona Lam has a great article up at The Tyee about Poetry in Transit, in which silaron is referred to as "a colleague's poetry blog." Booyah! We've hit the big time now!

Pink-logo'd thing #2: George Murray is leading the charge to include a poetry book in CBC's tenth-annual "Canada Reads" competition. He's voting for Dionne Brand's Inventory, which sounds good to me though I haven't read it (Brand's Land to Light On is one of my favourites, but ineligible for this as it's too old). I've already cast my vote for A Long Continual Argument: The Selected Poems of John Newlove. What'll you vote for?

Update: National Post Books is on it!
