Book shopping

November's book stack

I acquire books the way some go for shoes: I see something I want and simply must have it.

Before going shopping on Saturday I asked the Twitterverse to recommend poets I should read, and I received some good suggestions: Anne Sexton from @la_panique, Louis Untermeyer from @szul, Robinson Jeffers from @davidbmetcalfe (thanks guys!) and I added a few more to my list Рalmost none of which I managed to find.

Even so, I did not come home empty handed, as you can see from the stack pictured left. This is what I picked up:

Poetry

Fiction

Surprisingly, no non-fiction this time!

I’ve updated LibraryThing, and included links for anyone who wants to check out any of these books.

My Books Read in 2010 list has also been updated with what I’ve been reading lately. At the time of writing I’m up to 86.

What’s everyone else reading these days? I’m always open to suggestion.

  1. Good choice on the Pound, I check that one out of the Library every couple of months when the Ubuweb recordings of him reading over drums start to drive my brain into a frenzy.

    The Poetry Foundation has a good selection of Jeffers’ work: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/bio/robinson-jeffers

    Shine, Perishing Republic is one of my favorites, and one of his more well known poems.
