Just for the heck of it, we’ve added a “Book haiku” field on work pages (find it in the LibraryThing members’ description section, near the bottom of the page). Try your hand at summarizing your favorite books in 17 syllables!*
Run away from home
Lazy Summer down river
Ignorance ain’t bliss
Boat on the ocean
Was there really a tiger?
We will never know.
See recently-added haikus here, accessible via the More tab. Add yours (via the work page), and, if so inclined, tweet them using the hashtag #bookhaiku. We’ll be tweeting some of our favorites from @LibraryThing, too.
* Reminder: a haiku consists of three lines: five, seven, and five syllables respectively.
