New Challenge: Poetry
Okay, just one more Challenge... this one is a delight! I found it via Page 247, but it is being hosted right over here at Clover, Bee & Reverie's own blog, and all the details are listed at that site. There are various levels of participation, and since I do like reading poetry but it isn't as ingrained a habit as novel-reading, I'll start slow.
I'm going to be signing up at Limerick level (read 5 books of poetry, with at least 2 connected thematically). You could choose to read more, or less. Once again, this is a Challenge that runs throughout the whole year, so I have lots of time to find new poets to discover! And look at that beautiful button :)
1. Hooked / Carolyn Smart (Brick Books)
2. Grace & Poison / Karen Connelly (Turnstone)
3. A Saving Grace / Lorna Crozier (McClelland & Stewart)
4. Lost Gospels / Lorri Neilsen Glenn (Brick Books)
