Hour 8 Mini-Challenge: Book Spine Poetry #readathon

Posted by Irish in Contest, Read-a-Long100 Comments

Dewey Readathon

 

 

Hello and welcome to hour EIGHT of Dewey’s Read-a-thon!  I hope that you are still going strong and reading though lots of good books and that your eyes aren’t getting tired. Though maybe that 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.

 

Book Spine Poetry

 

Once we were

the broken hearted.

Splinterd fragments. Unraveling

in the after.

Dreamless shadows

in the silence.

Infinite.

So go forth and make some poetry! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

EDIT

The winner of the book spine poetry is Shannon from Leaning Lights! Congratulations!!
