Book Spine Poetry

I just discovered Book Spine Poetry (writing a poem using book titles by stacking the books and taking a picture). And I just had to try it.

First I stacked up all the books I’ve checked out for my research. There was not much poetry there even if I were to rearrange them. Rather uninspiring, poetically speaking.

The children’s bookcase proved a better source.

When You Reach Me
A Wind in the Door
The Wizard’s Map
Where the Sidewalk Ends

And then I had some fun with one of our adult bookcases.

God Wants a Powerful People
Standing for Something
Stand ye in Holy Places
Notwithstanding My Weakness

What Happens When We Die
That We Might Have Joy

Imagine writing an epic poem at Bookmans! I could easily get carried away with this idea. Brett told me I shouldn’t.

What kind of book spine poetry do you have sitting on your shelf? Just list the titles if you don’t have a picture.

    Dessert *after* dissertation. That’s all I’m saying. Love you! :brett:

      I think a little dessert would make the dissertation go a little faster. We need to finish that cake you made. :lisa:

    We only have a few books with us so our pickings are slim.
    Dad came up with ,
    INHERITANCE, A Firm Foundation

    And I came up with,
    Wonder struck, Harry Potter and the Socer’s Stone

    Ours are more statements. Dad and I both want to do this once we have all of our books with us once again.
