Book Spine Poetry

So, I'm not a poet. (Which I think will be quite obvious when you see my 'work.') However, I've been seeing this for ages and I've been wanting to do it nearly as long because it looks like so much fun. Well, coming from someone that usually doesn't even understand poetry - probably quite a disappointment to my brother - it was…interesting. (Yes, and fun, but kind of challenging too.)

What have I discovered? That poetry is still something I just usually don't get. Except for that 'miles to go before I sleep' one by Robert Frost -  because that one, I seriously love. I've also realized that some authors/type of books just work better for my kind of poetry. Also, I like poetry best when it doesn't rhyme. (Seriously, I was working on one that rhymed, but it just didn't make any sense at all.)

Yes, I do own all these books - but between my finicky camera and a weak internet, you don't get the pictures. Besides, two of these are on kindle. :)
