Wrap Up Post: Poe Fridays

Has it been one year already?!? Well, here we are at the end of Poe Fridays. I hope that my personal challenge has inspired a few of you to explore some of the poems or short stories of Edgar Allan Poe. Thank you to Elizabeth, Tif and Linda for playing along at least some of the time.  And thanks to Rob for his Poe expertise.

I'll admit that it was hard to read something almost every week but it was well worth it!  Here are all of the poems and stories that I read and mostly enjoyed.  I had very few bad experiences in this and many surprisingly good ones.  I hope to keep Poe in a more regular rotation in my reading so don't be surprised if a review shows up every once in a while!
