Listed below are links to weblogs that reference My Mistress' Ipad is Nothing Like the Sun (by Laura Orem):


Fabulous---I love the Sonnets. I guess my only complaint is that this project appears to be platform-specific, thus excluding non-Ipad people. Or am I missing something?

I love the Stephen Fry reading of that fabulous sonnet, one of my favorites. Thanks for posting this.


T. - it says "for Ipad" - I don't know if you can use it for other tablets. Maybe shoot them an email?

S. - I adore Stephen Fry. Why isn't he reading more of them? Grrr!

It's not spelled "Ipad," obviously.

Hopefully, our intrepid future will do away with the pesky task of reading altogether. We'll have Kim Karsdashian Reads Hart Crane and Jon Hamm Reads Phenomenology of Spirit. Those splotchy crumbs that make up the written word can't compete with the immersive experience of the virtual bedtime story. How merciful!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
