Dive Into Poetry Reading Challenge 2014


Dive Into Poetry: A Reading Challenge 2014

                                                  "She walks in beauty, like the night
                                                            Of cloudless climes and starry skies"
                                                                                                  ~ by George Gordon Byron


Ever read any poetry? I enjoy poetry, but it just seems that there's never enough time to read "just poetry". But it really isn't just poetry… it's love, it's lust, it's friendship, it's nature; Poetry is from the heart and mind, and can be about all sorts of things. I just received Aimless Love by poet Billy Collins from my Secret Santa this year, so I am motivated to join in on the fun in this reading challenge, Dive Into Poetry: A Reading Challenge 2014 hosted by Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit. I'll be "Dipping Your Toes" with at least 2 books of poetry on my plate. Here are the "rules"…

1. Create a post on your blog stating your intention to read poetry in 2014 and sign up in Mr. Linky. If you don’t have a blog, simply leave a comment about reading poetry in 2014.

2. Choose one of the following options to complete the challenge:

*Dip Your Toes and read up to 2 books of poetry throughout 2014 and leave the full link to each review (if you have them) in Mr. Linky. 
*Wade in and read 4-6 books of poetry throughout 2014 and leave the full links for reviews in Mr. Linky. 
*Dive in and read 7 or more books of poetry throughout 2014 and leave the full links for reviews in Mr. Linky.

3. Complete your goals between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2014.

Sound like fun? You can read all about it & find the sign up link at Dive Into Poetry Challenge 2014. Thanks Serena for hosting this reading Challenge! I'll be posting my poetry books that I read during the year right here, so bookmark this post!
