To celebrate

...the beginning of National Poetry Month, here's a pic* of the most recent arrivals.

The Ditch Was Lit Like This by Sean Johnston.

I'm still waiting on a number of others. I imagine they'll arrive before the snow goes. Still waiting for the juncos, too.


*I still haven't decided how I'll go about noting the books I've acquired now that I've officially entered the e-reader era, though I get the feeling posts like this will be less and less frequent as social media continues to evolve. I recently used the e-reader to read Per Petterson's Out Stealing Horses and I Curse the River of Time (outstanding novels), Alice Munro's Dear Life, and Tenth of December by George Saunders. I expect I'll use it mostly for the reading of fiction, though not all fiction. For one, I ordered the hardcover edition of River of Stars, Guy Gavriel Kay's new novel. I couldn't resist. I've yet to read a collection of poetry on the e-reader.
