Hello and welcome to hour FIFTEEN of Dewey’s Read-a-thon! Congrats on making it this far in the event! You have made it past the half-way point and maybe your eyes are feeling a little droopy and you are in need of a break. Which is why you are here visiting me as I am your mini-challenge host for this hour and we are doing one of my favorite challenges of read-a-thon past…BOOK SPINE POETRY!
The challenge rules:
- Using the titles on book spines, make a short poem at least three “books” long/tall.
- Don’t worry about form or meter or rhyming or anything like that. Just have fun!
- Take a picture of your book spine poem, post it on your blog/Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram/etc., then paste the permalink to that post in the comments to this post.
- This challenge will run for THREE hours and I will choose a winner randomly from the entries…unless one of them really speaks to me in some fashion. No matter what it will be totally arbitrary but hopefully fun times for all! (If I crash before the contest ends then I will choose a winner the moment I wake up again)
- The winner will get to choose one item from the epic readathon prize list
Here is an example of the book spine poetry entry that I did last read-a-thon and it took me less than 10 minutes to do using books in my read-a-thon pile and a nearby bookshelf.
Once we were
the broken hearted.
Splinterd fragments. Unraveling
in the after.
in the silence.
So go forth and make some poetry! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
