I‘ve received Pushkin‘s novel in verse from @Butterfinger and I‘m eager to begin. I‘m looking forward to the challenge and I think it‘ll be perfect for some nights by the wood stove on these cold January nights! #LMPBC #GroupU

Butterfinger I apologize for getting it to you so late. I was intimidated. 1w
Readergrrl @Butterfinger It does look a little, shall I say, daunting! But that‘s okay! I‘m eager to try it out. Thanks for selecting this one. I like a challenge! 1w
mcipher So glad we‘re all taking this slow. ♥️ I have to start my next book and I‘ve been more than a little behind even though I‘m excited for it 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am not much of a poetry girl so this #LMPBC #GroupU round is definitely helping me step out of my comfort zone.

Having said that, I really enjoyed this one. One of my favorites pictured above.

Butterfinger I am very close to finishing Eugene Onegin and will be sending to @Readergrrl and I received Faithful and Virtuous Night from @mcipher yesterday. 3w
mcipher @Butterfinger Sorry it was so late but glad it got there safely. I think I‘m a month behind 😬 (edited) 3w
Hazel2019 @mcipher no worries, it happens 🙃 (edited) 3w

Hi there, poetry peeps! I finally found the book of poetry that I‘d like to read. This actual book was given to me by a favorite professor friend several years ago. I had a heck of time finding it! Before I order a new copy for us all to write in, I just want to make sure none of you has already read it.
#LMPBC #Round013 #GroupU

Butterfinger I have not. 2mo
mcipher I haven‘t either! 2mo
Readergrrl @Hazel2019 I just sent my book of poetry to you today. I was a little late due to Thanksgiving and going away for my birthday this past weekend. I‘ve added a couple of edible treats for you to make up for my tardiness!! 1mo
Hazel2019 @Readergrrl yes worries! And happy belated birthday! 🥳 1mo

Hi #LMPBC #GROUPU #POETRY readers 😁

Here are my options to pick from. Basically I went through new poetry lists to come up with these - and this is what looked interesting.

Would you like to read any of these??

I loved this story in verse. Each entry was so beautiful, it made me cry--it reminded me of the many things my family and I have experienced, what we learned about each other, and understanding what home means to each of us. The annotations for #groupU felt personal and supportive. Coco thank you so much for sharing this book @TheBookKeepers @WanderingBookaneer @SamAnne #poetry #lmpbc

TheBookKeepers I‘m so glad you loved it ❤️❤️ I‘m excited to read everyone‘s notes 3mo

#LMPBC #GroupU is looking for 2 more poetry lovers!!! 😁

If you‘d like to join @Readergrrl and me, sign up here:
https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/5080444aead2ca0ff2-l...

RaeLovesToRead What is the Litsy Markup postal book club?? (I do love poetry) 3mo
Hazel2019 @RaeLovesToRead If you go through the sign up link there‘s an explanation at the top. But basically, there are 4 people to a group, we each choose a book, read it and mark up anything we find interesting and at the end of the month we ship our book to the next person. Repeat until your book comes back to you 😊 3mo
Readergrrl Great minds think alike!! I just did this too! Yours looks much better than mine!! Thank you!!! 3mo

RaeLovesToRead Ooh that sounds awesome! I'll have a look! 3mo
Hazel2019 @Readergrrl never hurts to advertise a bit!!! 😊 3mo
Ms_Ashley Such a cool idea! I saw this sort of thing for an art collaboration and it was amazing. Maybe the groups could share photos of the books when they are all marked up and lovely ❤️ 3mo
RaeLovesToRead I signed up but then realised is for US only and I'm in the UK... oops! Enjoy your poetry 💕 3mo
Hazel2019 @suvata @Readergrrl so what happens if we don‘t get 4 people in group U? 3mo
Readergrrl @Hazel2019 @suvata Please correct me if I‘m wrong, but I believe that we have to have at least 3 people signed up for it to run. 3mo
collegecatlady Hey! I just wanted to let you know that I still have your book from last round as it arrived late to me. I‘m going to read it and get it to you asap! 3mo
Hazel2019 @collegecatlady no worries, take your time 🙃 3mo

Read and annotated yesterday, and then I got to a point of the book where I started crying, and couldn't stop crying all day. I've had a book do that to me in a long time, and the annotations adds more to the book 😭 #poetry #lmpbc #groupU @TheBookKeepers @WanderingBookaneer @SamAnne

I loved this collection; Diaz's poems are provocative, moving, and familiar. I was struck with nostgalia when it came to her poems about her and her brother-reminded me of my own brother. Her provocative poems gave off vibes of Sor Juana Ines, and Diaz makes readers think about language and nature beyond what we understand of it. #lmpbc #groupU #poetry @WanderingBookaneer @SamAnne @TheBookKeepers

SamAnne @phantomx I wrote so many comments in the original book that was lost. The poems about her brother really resonated with me as well. And I loved the poem about the Oregon wolf. I worked on wolf recovery and I followed that wolf‘s journey. 4mo
TheBookKeepers Looking forward to getting this one! BTW I‘m moving so I just emailed you my new address for the final poetry book 💕 3mo
