Haiku Friday - Book on a shelf

Haiku Friday

A book on a shelf
is useless and unloved but
comes to life when read.


Please note - there is a page with guidelines for Haiku Friday. The link is on top of the right sidebar of this page.

If you are a WordPress User, leave a link to your Haiku in comment.

Another great one. I love your Friday Haikus.

I started cataloging my books this week. I got to 140 and had to stop for a while. About 3/4 of those haven't been read yet. I have a ambitious summer ahead of me.

This haiku is so true! Best part of reading is being transported to another place or time.

I want to make this in a poster and hang it over the kid's bookshelves! Would you autograph it for me?
