Running out of creative ideas for your stocking stuffers? I know I am! Would you believe that when I hung our stockings up this year I found candy from last year?! Turns out only 1 of my 3 children likes holiday candy! 

So, this year I’m looking for fresh ideas and I think I’m on to something: pocket size books: easy reading, tailored to each person. And for those “love birds” out there – boy, do I have a recommendation for you!

Cliff Notes:

Choosing Me: Love Letters from a Poet, Volume 1” is a unique instructional for lovers with a surprising twist: it’s written in poetry, free verse style.  And while poetry may not be for everyone; this one comes with an “how to read” preface, a road-map of sorts.

The author skillfully compiles, and shares love notes he’s written to his wife, his muse. This is a love story that can easily be replicated – should the reader so desire. 

Would I Recommend?

Absolutely would recommend this selection of poetry! “Choosing Me: Love Letters from a Poet, Volume 1“ is unlike anything I have ever read.

As a Catholic woman I try to view everything through a Godly lens. And I feel 100% comfortable in saying that this is a wonderful celebration of intimacy and love. It is a tasteful collection of heartwarming, pulse driving love poems.

Overall Thoughts:

  1. Bill Weber’s poetry style is 100% relatable. His word choice, love language is simple yet evokes an immediate emotional response. Even a non-poetry reader like myself could hardly put this book down. Single readers will long for companionship; coupled readers will have the tools to maximize romance.
  2. The introduction “please read” and what follows sets the tone for a magical experience. Bravo for honing in on this otherwise screaming secret: reading poetry is not a one size fits all experience. Audiences need this kind of poetry reading guidance to better grasp the author’s intent and really appreciate the work.
  3. Celebrating intimacy and removing the “rated r” aspect can be tricky. “Choosing Me: Love Letters from a Poet, Volume 1“ does an exceptional job in balancing those nuances. You may blush at times as you peek into their bedroom; into the author’s thoughts. Yet, the sultry references are comfortable and very natural.
  4. The black and white floral photography seen every so often makes sense. It’s a nice reminder of love blossoming, femininity. This was a delicate symbolic add, very à propos.

Poetry authors: watch out, the bar has been raised!

Meet The Author:

Bill Weber summed up?

I’ll have to quote him directly as a self-proclaimed “handsome devil living a charmed life in Illinois with his beautiful wife, Christine.”

What more could I say?

His autobiographical quips make you smile and so will this book.

Have you read  Choosing Me: Love Letters from a Poet, Volume 1? If so, what did you think of it? Like the idea of a book for a stocking stuffer? I’d absolutely love to hear from you!

Happy Holidays, Happy Blogmas!
