Mondays: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. This month it is hosted by Martha of Reviews By Martha's Bookshelf. 

I received the following poetry books, thanks to the poet, Michael Meyerhofer:

1) Damnatio Memoriae, winner of The Brick Road Poetry Prize
2) Blue Collar Eulogies, finalist for the Grub Street Book Prize
3) Real Courage, winner of the Terminus Magazine and Jeanne Duval Editions Poetry Chapbook Prize

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey 

I am in the midst of reading
Too many books!

I finished reading:
Love Thy Neighbor by Mark Gilleo
Ship Of Dreams by Brenda Hiatt

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away? 

Sometimes yes, not always.

Lol - I can relate to reading too many books at once - which is so weird because I use to be a 1 book at a time type of gal.

Damnatio Memoriae sounds intriguing. Enjoy reading!

I can only read one book at a time lately. Not sure what the deal is. I hope you enjoy your new poetry books.
