Book Spine Poems!!!

April is National Poetry Month! I read somewhere about Book Spine Poetry, and I wanted to give it a try. Let me know what you think. All these books come from my parents' house. As you will see, my mother has a thing for murder mysteries! My parents and I did this together, and we had a really good time, and a lot of laughs :)

  6. This just to remind me to read my books they are lying and waiting for me. I love mysteries and there is one that I borrowed at the library the author is Mary Higgins Clark. I noted the author and the title of the books I will look for this at the library.

  9. Hi there - splendid idea - don’t do murder mysteries - but here is a book-spine poem from the books above my desk:

    "Britain BC
    Landscape and Memory
    Edgelands
    Of Wolves and Men
    Wild Hares and Humming Birds"
