During 2010, I read some pretty amazing books (in my opinion) that subconsciously helped me with my writing. These are talented poets and writers who have the ability to make language echo in your head for months after you have read them. I wanted to share part of my 2010 to maybe make part of your 2011. We got three collections of poetry, a verse novel and a novel translated from Portuguese. You can click on the pictures to get a description from Amazon or go to the author's website to see what they are about. Enjoy!
