But poetry books are also notoriously...thin.
Don't those look pretty. I only have one shelf of poetry books.
That's so depressing.
Indeed. You'd think someone who works in a library could do a little better. :)
I probably shouldn't mention this but...I can count the number of poetry books in my collection on one hand. It's sad, I know. Occassionally, I do try. Really, I do!
I have a few more, scattered about. Until my daughter reached high school and used them for a project, I did have all the poetry corralled together. I really do need to get organized.But unless you like poetry, there's no sense in having it, J.S.
SFP, I enjoy reading you. It sounds like you all need a summer poetry challenge! I'm offering one over at bookeywookey - wanna come out and play?
I think my theme song should be "Hey Jealousy"
Oh, it is always so nice to see such a nice slab of Robertson Davies on a shelf! Is he incredible or what?I have one shelf devoted to poetry, but have long ago sort of ran out of room, and have quite a few books laying around, on coffee tables and such. As I have no more room for shelving, I need to do a purge.... it's a yearly thing with me. Select a box or two of books to go to the Rockcliffe Park Used-Book Sale.
Ted--I'm thinking about it. Bubee--I may have more books from high school on these two shelves than any other.Cip--Davies is great. I've read only one of the trilogies at this point, though, so I still have a lot to look forward to.
