I love really creative book spine poetry, and it’s a challenge we’ve done at the library for National Poetry Month in the past. When trying to compose a poem with a stack of books from my personal library, I found I was severely lacking in verbs. Still, I managed to put together one with adult titles and one with young adult novels.
Death with Interruptions
Give us a Kiss
José Saramago is one of my favorite authors (I wrote about my love for his long sentences here). I read my first Camus in college. Daniel Woodrell is fantastic and drinks whiskey and lives in the Ozarks and came for a week of events for Read Across Lawrence in 2012.
Something Like Normal
Journey of Dreams
These are all books I haven’t read yet! I’m anxious to start this short story collection from Kelly Link. I loved Trish Doller’s Where the Stars Still Shine, but still haven’t read Something Like Normal. Marsha Pellegrino is a Hispanic author, and I like to read YA by Latino authors.
