If this is you, shoot a message to and tell me if you’d prefer an ebook or a paperback, and where to send it (let me know which email to use for an ebook download link, or your mailing address for a paperback) and I’ll have one sent from Amazon pronto!

How I pick the winner: I print out a list of all Japanagram subscribers, cut them apart, and literally pull one out of a hat. Naturally, I add the new names, dump them all out and scramble them around each month, so different ones are on top!

If I didn’t pull your name from the hat this time, you might still get lucky next month! In the June Japanagram, I’ll be giving away the only poetry book that I sit down to read for five minutes and don’t come up for air until an hour later, The Essential Haiku, edited by Poet Laureate Robert Hass. Read why it’s the best haiku translation in the world in this month’s Book Review & Giveaway.
