Way over there in Switzerland, Susana Gardner was good enough to post my second annual "'best of' 2012 Canadian poetry books" over at the dusie blog, and, closer to home, Eric Hill was good enough to publish my "'best of' 2012 Canadian chapbooks" list on the Branta blog. Check them out! Plenty of titles worth reading and rereading.
derek beaulieu does annual lists too, which are worth looking at. See his third annual "most engaging books" list here. I seem to be on a few lists as well, all by Amanda Earl: 'best of 2012: poetry," "best of 2012: chapbooks," and "best of 2012: sexiest ottawa poets" (Christine is also on all three lists). Thanks, Amanda!
