Read Me 10th Anniversary Edition: A poem for every day of the year by Gaby Morgan
READ ME was first published in August 1998 to tie in with the National Year of Reading. It was an immediate success and sold over 180,000 copies. We are delighted to be publishing this tenth anniversary edition in the Rhythm and Rhyme month of the second National Year of Reading.
'This book contains Emily Dickinson, Wordsworth, Gareth Owen, Ian McMillan, Wes Magee, William Blake and Seamus Heaney - an excellent acknowledgement of the fact that some days we feel wordy and broody, and on other days we feel as brash as the wind, and no deeper than the surface of our skins.' - Michael Glover, Independent on Sunday
'The poetic calendar chosen by Gaby Morgan is a delight: motley, wide-ranging and unpatronising.' Observer
'Great riches are to be found between the covers of this unassuming paperback. . . this treasure trove celebrates the variety of English verse.' - Beverley Davies, The Lady
