New Book Trade!! Classic Book Haul


book haul 1


book haul 3



book haul 2

I knew the books would be damaged but I didn’t turn them away. I can’t remember what I traded for this one, I believe it was some wrist warmers and an ear warmer. I found poems by  by Shelley in the Anthology of English, read about the goddess Athena in the first chapter of  The Odyssey, and I had to have the copy of All Quiet on the Western Front with the black and white photo, even though I already had two copies.


On another note, I will be posting every day for the next 7 days as part of a personal challenge in January. It’s really to keep my mind off of what’s happening tomorrow. I don’t know how I’ll be able to work knowing that my mom will be on her way to the vet clinic to put down my dog. I think about writing a poem for him, but when I try to get the words down the page becomes a watery blur. I will cover myself with books and type, and hopefully this will break my fall as it does feel like the floor has given way to a black hole. No words can capture my heartbroken face, squeezing my eyes shut, or that all I see is my rage. I don’t want him to go. Don’t take him. Leave him here, please I wish I could hug him one more time.
