I am OVER THE MOON (no pun intended) with my #recipeswap surprise from @ErinSueMreads 😊 Beautiful book selection, it's just what I needed. Plus, I have not one, but THREE new Tarot cloths that I can use in my practice! This was such a generous addition to the swap 💜

I'll let you know when my card gets here! My local post office has been pretty short-staffed, so it may be a bit...I can't wait to see what recipes you picked! @BennettBookworm

BennettBookworm Omg I have The Lost Words and it‘s so stunning- I have to check this out! 9mo

Thank you so much @Chrissyreadit I love everything in my #litsylovesanimals the book is gorgeous and I can't wait to read it. The stickers are very pretty I might use a couple in a resin piece. The book sleeve 😍🥰💞. And the chocolate was stolen the minute my 7 year saw it lol. And you never know when you need tissues especially with two boys lol. I love any type of bookmark so that went straight into the jar with my others.

Endowarrior21 Thank you for hosting @ShelleyBooksie and @DinoMom 9mo
Chrissyreadit Glad you like everything ❤️ 9mo

Having a very early morning read been at it since 5.30 just wanted to share some more amazing art work in my current book The Lost Spells by Robert Macfarlane.
Reading this book real slow, devouring every poem.

Also my partner for the #AprilPoetrySwap is the lovely @Yuki_Onna

Tagged book I'm currently reading 📚

#WorldPoetryDay

kaysworld1 @Yuki_Onna Go ahead. I'll spam everyone with poetry and books to make up for missing it xx 10mo
Yuki_Onna @kaysworld1 Honey, some suggestions for the #AprilPoetrySwap :
Poetry that's hard to get here I'd love to try is by Lord Byron, Lord Alfred Tennyson or Lewis Carroll.
Specific poetry books I'd love to receive are Pillow Thoughts or Pillow Thoughts II by Courtney Peppernell (I already have PT III) or Ariel by Sylvia Plath. 😊

As you all know I went the Lake District recently it was a great short break I did lots of walking and resting. On the way home I got on the wrong bus and ended up in Kendal which I didn't mind because I visited my favourite artisan shop and bought a new journal and some postcards.

I needed a little break from all the holiday books, and these were perfect. The illustrations were beautiful, and the nature poems were a delight. #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers #AVeryMerryBingo #WinterCosy #WrapItUp #AVeryMerryBingo @StayCurious @TheSpineView @PuddleJumper @keys_on_fire @Jadams1776

This is a feast of the senses. Musical poetry to read aloud, gorgeous art to look at, poems that honor and appreciate wildlife and nature, and encourage you to get out and explore. Both the poems and the art are lovely. Definitely a book to read aloud and share. Liked the glossary/identification guide in the back as well. While you may not have the same flowers or wildlife in your area, this is a book that can be appreciated by anyone.

“I am red fox- why do you need me?

I am your double,
Your ghost, your other
The spirit of wild, the spirit of weather
Red is my fur and red is my art
And red is the blood of your animal heart.”

This book was beautiful, verses & paintings of birds, moths & other animals plus trees & flowers. Robert McFarlane wrote it & Jackie Morris was the painter.

Karisa That fox is gorgeous! 🦊 2y

Bk12 of July is done! My last finished book of July(I‘m about halfway through The Splendid And The Vile)this was an absolutely enchanting book of verse with some gorgeous paintings & drawings to match. This is a signed copy with leaf etchings on the hardcover. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #Booked2021 #PoetryOrVerse #PickYourPoison #BacklistChallenge #MountTBRChallenge2021 #Pageathon #PennyPerPage

In honour of poetry month, I've recommended a couple of poetry books suitable for all ages on my blog: https://lindypratch.blogspot.com/2021/04/poetry-books-for-all-ages.html
Note: these books would make great gifts!

Verity Ok, so I‘ve always had a hard time with poetry. The only stuff where I‘ve really really believed all the layers of meaning are intended are the War Poets (Owen, Sasson, Graves et al). I have a fiery burning hatred for Wordsworth, Tennyson and both the Brownings since I was forced to study them at school and I hate anything trite. Where should I start? It‘s a total blind spot in my reading. 2y
Lindy @Verity My advice is to stop thinking you need to get all the layers of meaning when you read poetry. Being forced to study it has killed the joy for many readers. Instead, just let yourself feel. Read a poem and then sit with it. Notice impressions & feelings. Where to start? Mary Oliver or Billy Collins or Joy Harjo or something you already have on your shelf. 🍀 2y
Verity @Lindy thank you so much! 2y
Lindy @Verity 😇 2y

Everything about this book is a joy: the small format, gorgeous endpapers, wordplay nature poetry, and, best of all, every page is ornamented with watercolour artwork. If you loved the first book by Macfarlane and Morris, The Lost Words, then you will surely enjoy this “little sister.” #AllAges #poetry

LeahBergen Beautiful! 2y
Lindy @LeahBergen I read a library copy but I have been thinking about buying a copy to keep, even though I rarely hold on to books. 2y

This was the perfect book for a cold, rainy afternoon. It‘s filled with beautiful wildlife and plant illustrations and some lovely poems. I took the advice of the poet and read this aloud which did really help the words and sounds trip off the tongue and also a nice way to remember that poems were first recited orally. It‘s a short book and one I‘m glad I got to slow down and take comfort within its pages.

AllisonM89 @TheAromaofBooks it's worth purchasing for the artwork alone! 2y
TheAromaofBooks I felt that way about this one. I could look at the pictures for hours & feel like even if you think Noah's Ark is just a fairy tale it's still worth enjoying for the amazing artwork! 2y

The Lost Spells (which is a follow up to The Lost Words) is a beautiful and mesmerising book about nature. Filled with stunning artwork by Jackie Morris and tongue twistingly good poems by Robert Macfarlane, I recommend this book to anyone looking to escape for a short while into the undergrowth and tree tops of our natural world.

charl08 Sold! 2y
laurieluna @charl08 it's beautiful, truly. I could spend hours looking at all the artwork, and it is packed with it. It arrived yesterday, actual publication day is today. I read all the poems before I went to bed last night and again today. I recommend The Lost Words too, and pretty much anything by Robert MacFarlane. He's one of my go to authors for escapism and word play. 2y
charl08 I love MacFarlane but haven't splurged on The Lost Words yet. Maybe Xmas! 2y
