Thank you @joy0201 for the poetry and tea! The blackout journal looks fun (and interactive), I've never read Rachel Wiley, and I love Oliver so will look forward to her thoughts on understanding poetry.

Bookishthoughts Looks like a great book!☺ 12mo
Joy0201 I hope you enjoy everything! 12mo
Joy0201 Sorry it was tardy! 12mo

I was adding my staggering #FavoritePoetSwap haul to my Goodreads tbr-on-shelf list and the title of this caught my eye. It is a fun one to read aloud to your Roommate‘s Cat, should you have one, especially if you read faster and louder as you go. Thank you @Trashcanman for your thoughtfulness and generosity. I‘m fortunate to have you as my friend.

Trashcanman 💕😊🤗 12mo

#FavoritePoetSwap has arrived on this chilly Colorado night! Folks, let me tell you, if a Lozano gets you in a swap, you‘re in thoughtful, generous hands! Thank you so much for sending me so many poems to read. I‘m looking forward to each book. The treats are perfect and the rainbow card a delight. The Shelly pamphlet advertises something that will help with my “head noises”! (Finally!😅) hugs&thanks, my friend, my friend! 🤗🖤 thanks @LazyDays 💜

Bookishthoughts How wonderful!🙌🙌💗💗💗 12mo

I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything! I've never had anything with my name on it so I will treasure this journal. Rupi Kaur is my favorite poet so thank you @TheSpineView for giving me not one, but two of her books 🥰 I love the tote and the mug is beyond cute. I haven't heard of Ron Rash, but I'm excited to read his work. I'm going to wear those socks all the time this winter and it's definitely tea time!

Looking forward to opening this all day has kept me going! Thank you Megan!! These are absolutely wonderful. I don‘t know where to start - but the Plath stuff is amazing ❤️ A new Ariel and look at that photo - I‘m so excited at the moment.

Can‘t wait to read the rest of the books 😁

Velvetfur I've just had a peek at the Plath poetry book on my shelf that I bought a few months ago, and it's Ariel! Have you read it already? If not, please let me know when you plan to so I can read it at same time and we can discuss! (if you want to!) 12mo
TrishB @Velvetfur just answered your email 👍🏻 This is my 8th copy of Ariel- I‘m an Ariel hoarder!! But am happy to read with you - always good to see different reactions - mine are probably very set now as I‘ve been reading it since I was 16. 12mo
Velvetfur @TrishB Oh wow, 8th copy! Sounds like you're well versed (groan) in that little book then 😂 Ok I'll let you know when I plan to read it then 😊 12mo

Oh @batsy, what a wonderful collection of poetry and treats! Thank you!! Such a fun mix of old and new, and new-to-me.(I've already dipped into the Pessoa and can tell I will love it! 👍) And the editions are gorgeous! 😍 Now I want to collect all the volumes of Penguin Modern Poetry! And for the sweet treats, bookmarks, and adorable notebook. Love it all!
You have excellent taste! 😘

I am truly happy to be matched with @merelybookish again! (She was also my match in a previous swap). You did very well, Margot, I love everything! 👏 I‘ve never read the two poets, thanks for introducing. Teas and biscuits are great, love the tote and pin, and tattoos stickers are a cool way to proclaim my nerdiness! Thank you for everything! 😙❤️

#favoritepoetswap Thank you @LazyDays this has been lovely.

merelybookish I'm so glad you like everything! But expect another delivery from BD . . . someday. 😯 12mo

TrishB Great stuff 👍🏻 12mo
erzascarletbookgasm @merelybookish There‘s more?! I thought it‘s only the Mary Oliver book. 12mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm I ordered 3 books from BD. They all shipped in mid- Sept. The dragon book I added at the end, mostly because I liked the cover. 🙂 12mo
erzascarletbookgasm You‘re most generous! I will keep a look out for the other two books. I‘m sure they will turn up eventually. Thank you @merelybookish 12mo
Kalalalatja I have heard so many good things about Mary Oliver, but never read anything by her. I‘m excited to see what you think! Lovely gifts 💕 12mo
merelybookish @erzascarletbookgasm Hard to browse BD and only buy one book! 🙂 12mo
batsy Lovely! That Dragons Fire cover is fab 😍 12mo
