If you've never read Billy Collins, definitely purchase this anthology. It contains his best work from the past and new poems as well. No other American poet so effectively mixes humor with insight in recording the small but intensely meaningful moments of life. Unlike other poets, he is neither pompous nor full of himself. This anthology is a great investment. For the cost of one book, you get the best of five of his previous chapbooks. I don't understand the previous negative review--"sits down and does nothing." The entire point of Collins' work is to find meaning in "nothing" or rather the simple occasions that often go unnoticed. And if you are over 50, watch the YouTube video as Collins reads the poem entitled "Forgetfulness."

Aimless Love Poetry book by Billy Collins is wonderful, just like all of the other poetry books by him. I always keep one of his books in the car with me in case I happen to get a chance to read, like waiting at doctor visits, stuck in traffic, etc. I try to purchase each one as they are published, or ask for them for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, etc. They are very enjoyable!

I love this most accessible of poets. But pray tell, why is this book $2 less for Kindle than for Nook?
