I Love the Smell of New Books in the Morning

Oh! Oh! Oh! Look what lovely, lovely things arrived in the mail today:

Bitter Greens, Poet's Cottage, To Spin a Darker Stair

That’s Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth AND Poet’s Cottage by Josephine Pennicott AND To Spin a Darker Stair edited by Tehani Wessley which contains stories by Catherynne M Valente and Faith Mudge, as well as beautiful illustrations by Kathleen Jennings.

I am soooooo tempted to take myself off to a hotel room this weekend and do nothing but read and order room service. Forget funding grants and so on for writers … I want a Reading Residency, dammit!




  1. Well I think you will appreciate Bitter Greens. I really enjoyed it and it was much darker in places than I suspected.

  2. Really! Reading Residencies should be given often to the discerning aka KMcD…

  3. I love the smell of new books too. Thanks for supporting Poet’s Cottage, Kirstyn. I haven’t been able to stop sniffing it myself. xx
