I am seriously addicted to teeny tiny poetry books. I only have four. But I would love to have the entire Everyman library. They’re so small! They fit so well in a purse or pocket! And they have lovely little ribbon bookmarks attached.
Right now I’m reading this one:
And also the Dylan Thomas (now out of print, but I found one), and also this one:
My grandmother gave me my first little book of Everyman poetry years ago and I love the little inscription on the inside:
I will go with thee
and be thy guide
in thy most need to go by thy side.”
A little secret: I like to take the jackets off books before I buy them (scandalous) and see what they look like underneath. These are beautiful without their jackets too. And really affordable. I have other bigger books of poetry but these are the one I seem to carry around the most.
What poetry books do you like/have you been reading lately?
