Omtale; Utvalgte dikt av Kolbein Falkeid

I 2012 var årets bok i Hele Rogaland Leser "Utvalgte dikt" av Kolbein Falkeid. Jeg har til slutt lest diktsamlinga, og nå kommer omtalen.

Beskrivelse fra Bokelskere.no
Boka inneholder et utvalg av Falkeids beste dikt, fra diktsamlinga Gjennom et glass-skår fra 1962 til Vind, eple fra 2003.

I mer enn førti år har Kolbein Falkeid (f.1933) vært et sentralt navn i norsk lyrikk. Han er en dikter som hele veien stiller spørsmål og søker ny erkjennelse. Han skriver dikt med stor leserappell, og samtidig med en refleksjon og dybde som løfter perspektivet.

Mine tanker om boka
Selv om mange av diktene var bra, er de kanskje ikke noe for meg, men det kan allikevel være at de kan passe for noen andre.

My Favourite... Bookmark

It's Wednesday and time for a new My Favourite... post thanks to Maureen's Books. The theme of the week was bookmark.

Personally I've got several favourites, but my newest favourite is pictured below. I got my hands on it thanks to The Black Orchard's FB page as they were having a sale in order have some circulation in the items. One of the things I really like about it, apart from it being an owl on it, is the fact that it's handmade.
