Spine poems — making poems out of the titles of books.


Waterstones are hosting a competition for the best spine poems, with Tate Britain tickets for the winners.

All you need to do is share a spine poem made up of a maximum of six books, as shown in the post above, on Twitter using the hashtag #gravityspinepoem.

Full details here.

I’m finding them a bit addictive…


(N.B. For the comp, I think you’re restricted to one entry but I’m having too much fun for that).

      Hi Josephine, I’m with you, I’m not competing (I think for the competition, you have to sub just one entry and comply with the T&Cs). I’m just doing them for fun, I trashed my bookshelves this morning, finding it surprisingly addictive! I might get the kids to have a go, they’d love it.

      • Yes, I think kids would love this – it would also be a good ice-breaker for parties, business meetings, workshops, etc etc I have sent one over to Waterstones in any case just for the fun of it and, yes, I’ve trashed my bookshelves!
