Christian Fiction Spine Poetry

There’s a trend happening on blogs recently called “spine poetry.”  Basically, you grab some books out off your bookshelf, end table, etc. and stack them up and snap a picture.  A lot of people get creative and make the titles of the books into a little story or poem.

I recruited some fellow co-workers and even a popular novelist (holla to Kaye Dacus!) to put together their best spine poetry.  Here’s what we came up with… Oh, and check out the bottom of the post to find out how you can send us your spine poetry!

The first two pictures are from my stack of books to be read…

I’d love to see what you can come up!  Grab some of your books and see how creative you can get with your titles.  Snap a picture of it and then tweet it to me at @LifeWay_Books and use #spinepoetry.   Can’t wait to see what you pull together!


  1. This was a fun idea!

  2. Julie Klassen says:

    These are so much fun! Thanks.

  3. We had fun with spine poetry contest over on my Author Facebook page several weeks ago to celebrate National Romance Awareness Month. I even started a Spine Poetry Pinterest Board. I was so impressed with people’s creativity! Love seeing spine poetry flourishing here!

  4. Had a lot of fun with Beth Vogt creating Spine Poetry a few weeks ago! I don’t tweet so I can’t share mine but it’s fun seeing everyone else’s.

  5. I did this with Beth too – so fun. I have tweeted my “poetry” :)

  6. What a fun idea! I’m headed to my bookshelf now. :)
