Book title poetry

LibraryThing has a nice collection of Spine Poetry people have submitted. Readers have stacked up books in order to turn the titles into poetry. Most are under eight books tall and the shortest are often the best, resulting in pithy, even shocking, statements.

Some of them are pretty bad (stacking up every book you own doesn't make you an amazing poet), but a few are charming and inspiring. I might even have to do some poetry of my own. The haikus are especially nice.
