Bout of Books 8.0 Read-A-Thon — Book Spine Poetry Challenge

Bout of Books
Hey guys!  *waves*  We’re officially on day THREE of the read-a-thon!  How are you doing so far?  I am SUPER excited to be a challenge host for this read-a-thon.  During my very first read-a-thon, my favorite challenge was Book Spine Poetry, so I jumped at the chance to host it this time around.
The rules are simple:
1. Find some books, and create a poem out of their spine.
2. Take a picture of the spine poem.
3. Upload it on the link.
Here’s my example poem:
2013-07-04 10.10.22
Die for me, for darkness shows the stars
Hold still, my name is memory,
Everything is illuminated before I go to sleep

See how simple it is?  The challenge will be open for 24 hours and once it is over, ONE person who is linked up with this challenge post AND is signed up for Bout of Books will be randomly selected to win a

$10 Gift Card to, Barnes & Noble, or The Book Depository.

Remember that you must link up to be entered!  Below the link are the Terms & Conditions for this contest.  Good luck!  And be sure to visit other book spine poetry challengers pages and support them.  We’re all in this read-a-thon together.
