Q: Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.

You have been warned: I am no poet. But I thought this was fun and would give it a try.


If you’ve done one, please leave a link! I’d love to see it :)

    Ooh nice! I just snapped a pic of one of my TBR stacks, so I wasn’t too creative either!

    I am no poet either, so it took me a while staring at the pile of books on my desk to come up with something… At least yours involved more books! I like it though. Sounds dark! (And of course, old follower via Bloglovin ;) )

  4. That’s quite the ominous poem there…but I like it! I doubt I’d be very creative if I attempted this one, so well done! Have a great Friday :)
