I always hoped this day would come.
For the past several years, poetry books and fiction books have intermingled on this wall. Today, however, something just snapped, and I had to finally make these shelves all poetry. No, I didn't have a fiction bonfire. I just moved them to the other side of my office. It's funny seeing all of my new books intermingling with the old ones. Luckily there's still space for all of the books that I have at home and keep meaning to add to this collection.
How do you have your books arranged? What's the strangest pairing of books, if you do it alphabetically? I think mine is Monica de la Torre right next to Emily Dickinson.
Oh yeah, and speaking of books, this Spring I will be transitioning into the role of Editor of the Akron Series in Poetry. Do you have any idea how excited I am? It is such an honor.
