Teen Friday: Book Spine Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month!


Did you know that you can use books to make poetry? One of our booksellers created the poem below by arranging the books so that when the titles are read from top to bottom, they make a poem.

A Far Wilder Magic,
Big Little Spells,
Then She Was Gone

We challenge YOU to come to the store and come up with a book spine poem, using titles you find here. You can use any books you find. These poems can be serious or funny, you should just be creative and have fun!

Snap a photo of your stack and send it to or share it on Instagram and tag us in your post! We'd love to see what you come up with!

While you're in the store, chat with one of our booksellers in the YA section upstairs about all of our current favorite YA titles, we'll be ready to give suggestions and hear about what you've been reading lately!
