#Book Spine Poetry | Blog Challenge

blog challenge

Now here’s a fun challenge. I first came across  this on Sue Vincent’s page,  then Chris the Story Reading  Ape’s page, who had reblogged from Lisa Shambrook. Lisa had got the idea from The Conclave of Sappho


Here’s the fun:  Go to your bookshelves and find a few books with title’s that make a poem when stacked on top one another.


When you’re done, share it on Lisa’s page, and feel free to come back and leave the link to yours in the comments here too.


Here’s mine:
