Book Spine Poetry

Have you heard of “book spine poetry?” It’s a kind of poetry that you create or accidentally discover by arranging book titles to make a poem. Start by collecting a few books, DVDs, or CDs (up to 7). Choose them at random or search out some with interesting titles – look in the library stacks or your book collection at home. Set the books with the spines facing you and keep moving the book titles around until you find the “lines” that go together best to make a poem. 
For inspiration here you can view a few websites where other people have posted pictures of their book spine poems or see examples in the library.
