Book Spine Poetry

I came across an interesting method of forming poems, Book Spine Poetry, from The Tripping Pencil (who credits a site called Brain Pickings for the idea).  You take a few books from your collection and arrange the titles to form a poem.

I modified mine slightly to allow one extraneous word at the beginning of each line.  You are encouraged to snap a photo of your stack of books comprising the poem if you choose, though I decided to forgo a photo.

Here is my first effort at Book Spine Poetry:

Underneath The Glass Castle,

Lies Angela’s Ashes.

Somewhere East of Eden,

Residents of The Town and The City

Collect Flowers for Algernon.
