I'm back for another mini challenge, and then I will probably, finally, get out of my pyjamas for the day.

Here's Ticket to Anywhere's description of the challenge:
Using the titles on book spines, make a short poem at least three “books” long/tall.

And here's my poem!

It's pretty abstract, and also the lighting in my house today is abysmal. The snowfall warning has turned into actual snowfall.
Plowing the dark
of human bondage.
Who has seen the wind?

A little bit about each of these books, again:

Plowing the Dark by Richard Powers

This is one of the very few books that I read in university (not for university, but for recreation, while I was there). I remember it being a cool concept about the creation of a holodeck type of technology, connected with a hostage in the Middle East. I've never read any of Powers' other books yet, though.

Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham

A Top 100 whose review I haven't posted yet, but which you may remember that I called the best book I read last year.

Who Has Seen the Wind? by W. O. Mitchell

This is the prototypical Saskatchewan prairie novel, which I read a little while before I started blogging.  It's ok, and talks about the wind a lot.


  1. I really like your poem, specially the last line. Hope you are having a blast!

  2. It looks like you're having a great readathon! Happy reading! #TeamPopper
