Martha Orlando on January 4, 2013 at 6:56 pm This would make an excellent Friday moment! Very creative, Corinne! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:28 pm Yes, it would, Martha. I’m getting back to Friday moments soon. Would love to see your attempt at book spine poetry. B k Chowla on January 4, 2013 at 6:50 pm You,for sure come up with original ones Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:26 pm I wish I could claim the idea as mine , Mr Chowla. But then the selection of books is mine! 😉 Annetta Powell on January 4, 2013 at 3:32 pm A picture is worth a thousand words! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:25 pm It sure is , Annetta. Thanks so much for coming by. Rachna on January 4, 2013 at 1:36 pm Fabulous :). Indeed books often reflect our thinking. Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:24 pm Thanks, Rachna. Indeed they do. I think we go out and unconsciously find what we need in books. Jas on January 4, 2013 at 1:33 pm Loved the collection. The book spines tell the complete story indeed 🙂 Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:23 pm Thanks, Jas. That’s just a few of my collection. I’m not sure when the collecting is going to end – so you can expect more such ‘stories’ from me! 😉 G Angela on January 4, 2013 at 12:15 pm Perfect ! corinne, love this expression ! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:21 pm You must try it out sometime, Janet. Roshni on January 4, 2013 at 11:17 am good one, Corinne!! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:21 pm Thanks, Roshini. Teach Jim on January 4, 2013 at 11:08 am Live, Love & Laugh is what is on the walls of our home. I do like the living loving and learning book. It takes me into our living room where the is a sign hanging above the piano my wife teaches at that reads ” To Teach is to Love”. Great inspiration. Thanks! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:19 pm Thanks for sharing, Jim. What a lovely sentence ‘To Teach is to Love’ is. That might inspire me to do a post someday soon! Lydia Brown on January 4, 2013 at 10:28 am Great example of less is more! A message that is so true. Thank you Corrine Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:17 pm Thanks so much, Lydia! 🙂 Privytrifles on January 4, 2013 at 9:31 am Such a beautiful message brought out so nicely 🙂 Loved it!! <3 Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:16 pm Thanks, Privy. You should try your hand at it – I’m sure you’ll come up with a good one too. Dangerous Linda on January 4, 2013 at 9:08 am ahhhhh! glad i returned!!! that is not cheating — it is collaborating!!!!! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:14 pm Glad you liked it, Linda. Collaborating? Now that’s what I’m look forward to doing with you. ♥ Mark Walsh on January 4, 2013 at 1:11 am Hi Corinne, I love this post because of the simplicity but yet the power of the message. Makes you think of the book titles that apply to yourself…. Well done Mark Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:13 pm Thanks so much, Mark. I would like to try this again with other books I have. 🙂 What titles would you choose for yourself? Dawn Storey on January 3, 2013 at 11:04 pm Love it, and love the idea of book spine poetry! Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:12 pm Thanks so much, Dawn. I’ve been meaning to try my hand at this for a while. I can see myself doing it again! Buddy Hodges on January 3, 2013 at 8:22 pm Love it Corinne! Very creative. Your selections raise my mood and make me smile. I have read some of them, and the other titles say a lot in the titles alone. Life affirming! P.S., You have given me the idea, which I have not seen before. I have plenty of good books. I may try it. Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:10 pm Glad you liked it, Buddy. Book Spine Poetry is by no means my idea. I have seen it on other blogs and decided to try my hand at it. Do give it a try – it’s fun! Pete Chapman on January 3, 2013 at 8:14 pm Great idea Corinne – Must try the book spine thing myself. Thanks for the inspiration Peter Corinne Rodrigues on January 4, 2013 at 7:06 pm I’m warning you it’s kind of addictive, Pete! I can see myself doing this again. Alka Gurha on January 3, 2013 at 6:16 pm Anne has put it so nicely……so true. Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 6:21 pm You should read Anne’s story sometime, Alka. I’m waiting for her to write part two. She’s a truly inspirational woman. Anne on January 3, 2013 at 6:11 pm What a fabulous idea, Corinne. I truly agree with you. Sometimes other people can express our views and feelings better than we can. I think that it’s because we’re so involved, we can’t think objectively enough to express ourselves entirely. Great image. Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 6:20 pm Book spine poetry has been around for a while now, Anne. I’ve been itching to do it. You’re so right – we often lean on other people’s words to tell our story. Having said that, I marvel at the way you have told yours and the way you’re living it out too. ♥ Akanksha Dureja on January 3, 2013 at 5:30 pm Wow! This is amazing! 🙂 I would love to try this sometime . Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 6:18 pm I saw it on Shilpa Garg’s blog and remembered having seen it earlier, Akanksha. I can see myself getting addicted to this! Mayura on January 3, 2013 at 4:33 pm Hi Corinne, Other people’s feelings and expressions hidden in the words as I see mostly 😉 Words can be of anyone but not exact feelings and expressions, no? 🙂 Cheers… Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 5:13 pm I’ve been dying to do a book spine poetry post for a while, Mayura. Ran out of words today and chose this to express myself. Rahul on January 3, 2013 at 4:23 pm That is so nice! Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 5:03 pm Glad you liked it, Rahul. My first attempt at book spine poetry. Shilpa Garg on January 3, 2013 at 3:34 pm Wow!! This is so awesome!! Simply loved your expression through these book spines, Corinne!! 🙂 Corinne Rodrigues on January 3, 2013 at 5:01 pm Thanks to you for the inspiration, Shilpa!
