PoeTRY Something New 2018

2017 got away from me at the end of the year, but I wanted to get this post up early for those interested in continuing their poetry reading in 2018.

I love seeing which books others read, and I often add new books to my ever-growing TBR list of poetry books. I’m sure 2018 will be no different.

If you’re interested in reading poetry this year, challenge yourself to try something new. Read a single volume of poetry outside your comfort zone.

If you normally read classic poetry, read a contemporary volume.

Another challenge would be if you read from a book at home, go to reading instead and hear a poet read live!

Sign up here in Mr. Linky to join the challenge and link all your reviews (if you do them) in the linky too:

Happy reading!

    Glad you’re hosting again. Will try to read at least one but you know how it’s been.

  2. I may TRY to do this!

  3. I already have a book of poetry on hold at the library so I’m hoping to read more poetry this year. Still last year wasn’t bad but always hoping to read more!

  4. I’ll try to go to a reading; there are usually plenty of them at Kenyon.
