Book Spine Poetry

17 Aug

Have you heard of book spine poetry? I just did for the first tine this week, and I think it’s really cool. You take books you own (from what I’ve heard there’s some debate on whether the books should come from one shelf or not) and make the best poem you can using the book titles as they appear on the spines. Here’s my first one:


On the road
Rebecca pledged
All the available light.

It’s fun, you should try it! If you do, leave a link on the comments below so we can check yours out!

    What a neat idea! I had never heard of such a thing before discovering it here. I like your poem. For only three short lines, you manage to conjure a picture to my mind of a woman hopeful and romantic. Thanks for sharing with us. 😉
