    Hello Corrine,

    This is stunning. I am seeing such a post for the first time in my life and you are unique in all ways.
    I will read all your articles and share my thoughts on those within the next 6 months.
    That’s a personal target I have set for myself.

    Sincerely,
    Rafi

    Book spine poetry! That’s brilliant. I’m going to look at my books on the shelf in a totally new way.

  6. UmaS UmaS January 4, 2013

    I want to tell myself “Will the real me stand up please??” Its getting to that levels sometimes !!!
    I like the way you’ve done this post !!!

    This would make an excellent Friday moment! Very creative, Corinne!

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Yes, it would, Martha. I’m getting back to Friday moments soon. Would love to see your attempt at book spine poetry.

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      I wish I could claim the idea as mine , Mr Chowla. But then the selection of books is mine! πŸ˜‰

    A picture is worth a thousand words!

  9. Rachna Rachna January 4, 2013

    Fabulous :). Indeed books often reflect our thinking.

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Thanks, Rachna. Indeed they do. I think we go out and unconsciously find what we need in books.

  10. Jas Jas January 4, 2013

    Loved the collection. The book spines tell the complete story indeed πŸ™‚

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      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! πŸ˜‰

  13. Teach Jim Teach Jim January 4, 2013

    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 Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Thanks for sharing, Jim. What a lovely sentence ‘To Teach is to Love’ is. That might inspire me to do a post someday soon!

  14. Lydia Brown Lydia Brown January 4, 2013

    Great example of less is more! A message that is so true. Thank you Corrine

  15. Privytrifles Privytrifles January 4, 2013

    Loved it!! <3

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Thanks, Privy. You should try your hand at it – I’m sure you’ll come up with a good one too.

  16. Dangerous Linda Dangerous Linda January 4, 2013

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Glad you liked it, Linda. Collaborating? Now that’s what I’m look forward to doing with you. β™₯

    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 Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Thanks so much, Mark. I would like to try this again with other books I have. πŸ™‚
      What titles would you choose for yourself?

  18. Dawn Storey Dawn Storey January 3, 2013

    Love it, and love the idea of book spine poetry!

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      Thanks so much, Dawn. I’ve been meaning to try my hand at this for a while. I can see myself doing it again!

  19. Buddy Hodges Buddy Hodges January 3, 2013

    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 Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      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!

  20. Pete Chapman Pete Chapman January 3, 2013

    Great idea Corinne –
    Must try the book spine thing myself.

    Thanks for the inspiration

    Peter

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      I’m warning you it’s kind of addictive, Pete! I can see myself doing this again.

  21. Alka Gurha Alka Gurha January 3, 2013

    Anne has put it so nicely……so true.

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 3, 2013

      You should read Anne’s story sometime, Alka. I’m waiting for her to write part two. She’s a truly inspirational woman.

  22. Anne Anne January 3, 2013

    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 Corinne Rodrigues January 3, 2013

      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. β™₯

  23. Akanksha Dureja Akanksha Dureja January 3, 2013

    Wow! This is amazing! πŸ™‚
    I would love to try this sometime .

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 3, 2013

      I saw it on Shilpa Garg’s blog and remembered having seen it earlier, Akanksha. I can see myself getting addicted to this!

  24. Mayura Mayura January 3, 2013

    Hi Corinne,

    Other people’s feelings and expressions hidden in the words as I see mostly πŸ˜‰ Words can be of anyone but not exact feelings and expressions, no? πŸ™‚

    Cheers…

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 3, 2013

      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.

  25. Shilpa Garg Shilpa Garg January 3, 2013

    Wow!! This is so awesome!! Simply loved your expression through these book spines, Corinne!! πŸ™‚
