Books Ordered

So I received a bit of money for books, and sent off a large order to amazon.com. Some of them I was curious about, a couple I’ve lost and wanted to replace, and a couple are new and I’ve been hoping to get. Here's the list. I still have a hundred dollars or so, but I thougth I'd save that for AWP.

What fun it was to order a bunch of books of poetry, at least one I know I like quite a bit, and at least one I'm certain I'm going to dislike quite a bit . . .

Man, that sounds great. I'm talking about "I received a bit of money" . . .

I hope you report back when you've read them. Some I've read (I liked the Book of Funnels), some I'm very curious about (Sarah Vap esp.).

I'm with the Vagrant. What fun! Of your list, At the Drive-In Volcano is currently in my Amazon shopping cart.

It's wonderful thing, to receive a bit of money, and to have the stipulation that it must be on books. Otherwise, of course, I'd buy groceries.

Leslie, I'm reading Vap's Dummy Fire right now.

Talia, At the Drive-in Volcano . . . I got it on a lark. I'm not sure what I'm going to think of it.
