The Archived Adventures - Book Spine Poetry, Part 1

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Swing Life Away by Rise Against.

Has anyone heard of book spine poetry? Apparently it's a fairly new art form that is taking off and is pretty self-explanatory even if it isn't nearly as easy as it sounds. Simply put, you create a poem from the titles of book spines. Like magnetic poetry - sort of. It has some really cool (and sometimes bizarre) results. But dang is it fun. So this entire week, you get to see my early attempts of spine poetry in action. I did this all at my local library and I got some really funny looks for it, too.

And if you decide to hop in on the fun, send me a link and I will post it back here.

After the moment,
One whole and perfect day---
Everything is fine.

I sort of did this, except I was trying to make a sentence, not a poem:

I've never seen or heard of this before.
It's love at first sight.
I'm off to look at what I can do with my current bookshelf...
