Feature and Follow #48 -Bookspine Poetry

YAY it’s Friday! Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature and Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.The Feature and Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Rachel of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to meet more new bloggers!

What sets this Hop apart from others, is that our hosts feature two blogs. Every week they will each showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow both their featured as well as our lovely hosts as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your Feature and follow post. I prefer being followed via e-mail, RSS / Bloglovin’ or Google+; or you can like my facebook page, or even follow me on Twitter.

This week’s question is an activity –

Take a photo of some of your books, and use their titles to write a poem!

This is such a great idea! I have had a little trouble with the books, though, since I actually own less and less paper books and more and more e-books. But I think I managed 🙂 And I truly had a lot of fun doing it – even if my poem might not make a lot of sense 😀

Bookspine Poetry - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Obasan and Itsuka need The Rez Sisters’ help
They are in search of King Lear
Who is beleived to be In The Skin of a Lion
Hidden like an Outlander
Some think he is Dead and Gone
Others say he is Splintered
Ever since that Fall of Night
When, with a Shiver
He commited Grave Sins
in Glass Houses and out.
Now, happily they can announce The Return of the King
After he has been for a long time in The Exile


What about you? Did you have fun writing a poem, or was it hard? I really look forward to reading everybody’s posts today! I love it when us bloggers get creative 🙂

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks Traci! I just realized Rached made a poem consisting only of the word in the titles… I couldn’t have done that! But I had a lot of fun with this.

      Have a fantastic Friday, Traci, and happy reading 🙂

    • Thanks Stormi 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one – and I have to admit I was very happy to have gotten the question last week already, as I needed some time to think.

    • I’m sure you’ll have fun even as a spectator, Robyn 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! It’s always nice to ‘see’ you.

      Have a fantastic Friday.

    • I know, I love this week’s question / activity. It’s so much fun to see what everyone comes up with 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Amy 🙂

    • I think the way we all go about it so differently is part of what makes this FF so great! I love seeing the creativity.

      Thanks for stopping by, Jessica 🙂

    • I agree, I love reading everybody’s posts this week. Thank you for your kind words 🙂 I’m not sure we were ‘supposed to’ add words, but I felt like it, so I did 😉

      Thanks for stopping by Seirra 🙂

    • Thank you Naomi! I’m in awe today, I love seeing what everyone did with their books 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, have a fantastic Friday.

    • Thank you, Maria 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one, and I love seeing what everybody else came up with as well 🙂

    • Thank you Megan 🙂 I’m having such a good time today checking out all the poems…

      Have a wonderful weekend!

    • I know – this activity was so much fun – first finding the titles, then playing around with them a little, then trying to make sense of it 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by Brandy 🙂

    • Thank you Alyssa 🙂 Yes, I had a little trouble at first because I don’t have many books in paper form anymore…

      Have a great Friday 🙂

    • Thanks Jennifer 🙂 I actually wrote my post before the complete question had been posted – based on what Rachel posted last week. So I went completely the way I wanted to.

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. I really like the added words in there that make it more like a real poem. It’s pretty long and looks like it took quite a bit of work. I really enjoyed it! I’m with you on the e-books too so most of my newer titles can’t be used for spine poetry. I like what you came up with though. Thank you so much for stopping by my FF.

    • Thank you Jaclyn. I had to add a little something, because the titles I could use (like, not the Oxford Dictionary of Philosopical Logic, The Medieval Times etc – although that could have ended up fun as well) were pretty limited.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • Yeah, I saw one blogger who used the covers of some of the books on her kindle… I wish I had thought of that!!

      Thanks for stopping by Kimberly 🙂

  2. Great job! Your poem rocked. 😀

    How did you find out about this last week? I never know what’s coming before the day. Pretty pleased with mine then as I did it in about 10 minutes. Maybe I just need to pay more attention.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a fab weekend.

    • Since last week, Rachel (Parajunkee) posts next week’s question at the end of this week’s post… She did so today as well, I can’t remember what it will be next week right now, but it’s possible to look it up to prepare 🙂

      Yours was fun! I can’t believe you did that in only ten minutes :O

      Thanks for stopping by.

      • Oh, I really should pay more attention. Just looked and you are perfectly correct, next week is sharing your favourite literary quote. I swear I go round with my eyes shut sometimes.

        Thanks! Maybe I work better under pressure. 😀

        Have a great weekend.

        • LOL 🙂 The part with next week’s question has only been there since last week, though, but I knew where to look for it 🙂 And sometimes, work done under pressure is very good work.

    • Thanks for stopping by Jane 🙂 Having the topic in advance helped a lot. Since I live in Europe, I am used to only seeing the question when I get up on Friday morning, then, getting ready to leave for the day having to come up with something real quick.

    • Thank you Jennifer 🙂 Yes, a few of those books were some I had to read for class, others were bought by choice.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • Thank you Brandee 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one! And I almost missed your comment :O that just won’t do!

      Thanks for stopping by.
