Book Spine Poetry

Earlier this year I joined Instagram and discovered one of the biggest, most passionate groups of booklovers on the Internet. Bookstagrammers post pictures of their favorite books, books arranged as spirals or rainbows, and "shelfies" of their bookshelves. Best of all, Instagram is a great place to find out about new books to read. (As if I need any help adding to my to-read list...)

My photography skills are pretty much limited to "point and shoot," but I'm still having a lot of fun posting pictures on Instagram. I'm probably not going to attempt a book spiral any time soon, but I have been trying my hand at book spine poetry.

This was the first poem I tried to make using the titles on my book spines:

My second attempt:

I just tried this one, but I think I liked the first two better:

What do you think of this challenge? Have you ever tried book spine poetry?
