Poetry in Motion from Coast to Coast is a book of short poems that were originally written on subways all across America. Some of my favorite poems were in this book including This is Just to Say.

My Review: This was an interesting book of poetry.

I studied this poem in high school english.

We Real Cool

We real cool. We
Left school. We

Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We

Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We

Jazz June. We
Die soon.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

If you have found this book, welcome to Bookcrossing and thank you for taking the time to let us know about its journey. Feel free to enjoy the book and pass it along to a friend, neighbor, family member or co-worker, or simply leave it somewhere for another lucky reader to enjoy as you did! This book isn’t your type of read? No problem, don't feel obliged to read it, just be kind enough to help it on its journey.

This is the Journal Book for the Variety Genre Bookbox (US only). This book will travel with the bookbox, so we can track it. A couple of things, I would like all the books be copyright 2000 or later and I don't want the box back, so maybe the last person on the list would be a Little Free Library steward or a person that helps feed a local OBCZ.
Please journal here when you receive the box and also when you send it on. If you have a tracking number, please put that in your journal entry. Try and keep the box no longer than 2 weeks. If you have trouble contacting the next person let me know in case we need to skip them. Thanks for participating!

Variety Genre Bookbox (US only), that is up to 24 books now (many romance), has arrived in Arizona!!! ; ) https://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/537789/8953144

"The Eagle" has landed...and just in time for my Matcha Tea break, so I've PMd LaveggioCoffee for her address, and am enjoying a few poems from the "Poetry In Motion From Coast to Coast" Journal Book (love this!) with my tea. Friday (perhaps Saturday) will be the earliest opportunity I will have to look through the box to make my selections and additions, but I wanted to let you know it arrived safely. ; ) I'll send it on its way the first part of next week, and make a quick JE once I post this, as well. ; )


The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ringed with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

Very much enjoyed reading this little Journal Book 7/1. It included some poetry I was familiar with, as well as both odd, and interesting verses, that I was not familiar with.

I have CHOSEN and REMOVED (3) Titles from the Bookbox:

An Assembly Such as This (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman: Book 1) by Pamela Aidanhttps://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2571136

Duty And Desire (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentlemen: Book 2) by Pamela Aidan https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2571140

These Three Remain (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman, Book 3) by Pamela Aidan https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/3566607

I have ADDED (3) Titles to the Bookbox:

Moving Target (Harlequin Romantic Suspense) by Kimberly Van Meter
https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/14375422

The Michigan Murders by Edward Keyes
https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/14512872

The House of God by Samuel Shem, M.D., Ph.D.
https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/14512880

And I found LaveggioCoffee's address in my email when I checked it today, so I have the package all ready to mail out...most likely after the 4th of July, but I'll try for the 3rd, if I am feeling better. ; ) I will make release notes that contain the Tracking Number once I do. THANK YOU for organizing, and including me in, your Bookbox, JennyC1230!!! ; )

The book box is here. So many great selections. We plan to go through it over the weekend. As the LFL stewards we help are a elementary schools or have very young stewards, I will be putting some of the books back into circulation with bookcrossing members. We received a dozen romance books and I don't want to be the one educating the elementary kiddos! :)

We will log each of the books over the next few days and then put in release notes as we pass them along. Thanks again everyone!

We'll utilize this book as a journal for another bookring/bookray in the near future.
