Swap Info:

Looking to try a book in a new-to-you genre? Or looking for an excuse to read a book off your Mt. To Be Read? Every month, we'll explore a different genre by reading a single book and sharing our thoughts with our partner. July's genre is poetry. Whether you're new to the scene or just using this swap to read one you've had your eye on for a long time, this is the swap for you.

Genre Definition:

(Wikipedia) Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.

Swap Instructions:

Choose any poetry book and read it! There are tons of online suggestion guides that might help. Please post below if you have any suggestions.

Send an email or swap-bot message to your partners with ALL of the following info:

  • Title & author of the book you read
  • Why did you choose this book?
  • A brief summary of the book
  • A brief review--what did you think of it?
  • Your experience with the genre (have you read a lot? a little? was this your first?)
  • Your thoughts about the genre overall and if this book was a good representation of it
  • Would you read more of this genre in the future?

Let me know if you have any questions/comments. Group rules & ratings apply.

Previous genres covered so far: romances, picture books, biographies, young adult fiction, dystopias, mysteries, horror, tie-in novels, re-reads, graphic novels, erotica, contemporary fiction, humor, short stories, nonfiction

Are children poetry books allowed?

Are books in other languages than English allowed?

KateKintail 06/25/2015 #

Yes to both! Any kind of poetry counts.

Your emails to your partners about the book you read should be in a language they can read, but that's the only language restriction.
