Book Spine Poetry

April 30th, 2011 by

Words are the backbone of Book Spine Poetry. Get it? Backbone? Yuk yuk! Anyway… Inspired by these book spine poems, I recently stopped by a bookstore and decided to write a little poetry — with book titles. Imagine me, the poetess! Click on each thumbnail to see the poem!

Did you notice my own poetry theme book pick, Where the Sidewalk Ends, made it into one of my poems? I hope I made Shel Silverstein proud.

Still hankering for some more? Check out these book spine poems! What poems can you compose from the books around your house, school, and library? Leave your own book spine poetry in the comments!

Nancy balanced about 15 books in her arms in the bookstore. A few people thought she was hoarding and gave her the stinkeye. =/
