🍂 yay, it’s my SEPTEMBER TBR 🍂 bring on all the autumnal things!
I love TBR time and the first TBR going into autumn makes me even more excited!
But first, I’m excited to share that I have a You’ve Got Mail inspired shirt up in my Etsy shop! I gave my patrons a few different design options over on Patreon and this is the one that won the votes:
The shirt comes in a variety of different colors and there is also a mug, tote, postcard and sweater with the same design.

The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
Emily Dickinson is my favorite poet of all time, I love that all her poems come in this one volume.

Only eleven of Emily Dickinson’s poems were published prior to her death in 1886; the startling originality of her work doomed it to obscurity in her lifetime. Early posthumously published collections-some of them featuring liberally “edited” versions of the poems-did not fully and accurately represent Dickinson’s bold experiments in prosody, her tragic vision, and the range of her intellectual and emotional explorations. Not until the 1955 publication of The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, a three-volume…
