A Readathon Mini-Challenge – Spine Poetry!

One of my all time favorite mini-challenges is the Spine Poetry challenge. Even though I am terrible at poetry. So, when I saw no one had suggested it, I snatched it up. So, what IS spine poetry? For newbies, it is where you take a select number of books and use the titles to make a poem! Easy peasy! See:


And I’m horrible at poetry. So you have totally got this!

The prize?

I want to give away something special, but I also want to give away something people want. SO. If you care to glance over at my side bar, so far this year I have read 78 books (although, by the time you read this, I hope it’s more!). Pick 1 book from there that you would like to read and I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU. International peoples, if it’s on Book Depository, you can have it too. I WILL BUY YOU ONE.


Make some poetry. Take a picture. Post it on your blog. And link up to it here. I will pick a winner in the 2:00 EST hour.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Sorry I’m late. I, um, sorta fell asleep. So. After careful consideration (there were so many wonderful entries!) I asked my daughter to pick a number. The winner is number 42;

  1. What a cool challenge! I am a first time Read-a-thon’er, and I think this is such a neat, clever idea. I actually just moved, so most of my books are still in boxes, but I’ll try to dig some out here shortly and see what I can come up with. : )

  2. Always love this mini challenge 🙂 Thanks for doing it Heather!! And thank YOU for being such a great host as always 😀 Yep…gonna keep telling you that. Hope you have some fun reading now that your hosting duties are all done!!!

  3. Hubby has the camera right now, so I couldn’t get an actual picture of my stack of books, but I’ve done what I could with pictures from online and a little crazy creativity. :O)
