I BUY POETRY! (2014, #2)

Woot!  Someone just placed a single, 15-book order of VERSES TYPHOON YOLANDA

Extremely heartening given the continued drop in overall poetry book sales (for example, HERE and HERE).  Which is why I also try to ensure I continue to buy poetry books even as my To-Read stacks continue to grow.  Here’s an update on moi Recently Bought Poetry List of books by poets or about poets/poetry:

MEMORY HOLES by Erin Virgil  

THE FEEL TRIO by Fred Moten


AMULET by Jason Bayani

THE CASTING OF BELLS by Jaroslav Seifert, Trans. From the Czech by Paul Jagasich & Tom O’Grady

HOROSCOPES FOR THE DEAD by Billy Collins (It was on extreme sale :)

147 MILLION ORPHANS (MMXI-MML) by Eileen R. Tabios

VERSES TYPHOON YOLANDA: A STORM OF FILIPINO POETS (edited by yours truly; if I buy my own books I include on this list)

My list of purchased books is skewed as much of what interests me is given to me for free.  But I try, and click HERE for other poetry or poetry-related books I've purchased in the past.
