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 NOTHING THAT IS by John Olson
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.
