Hello Book

Hello Book!
by N.M. Bodecker


Hello book!
What are you up to?
Keeping yourself to yourself,
shut in between your covers,
a prisoner high on a shelf.
come in book!
What is your story?
Haven't you ever been read?
Did you think
I would just pass by you
And pick me a comic instead?
No way book!
I'm your reader
I open you up.
Set you free.
Listen, I know a secret!
Will you share your secrets with me?
What book are you currently reading?

I'm reading McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses. It's excellent, but I'm a bit confused cuz I'm on page 50 and no one's yet called a horse "pretty" yet. Huh.

A novel way of putting it (forgive the pun)I loved the poem, really good.

The book I am reading at the moment is a Paul McKenna self help book about losing weight with a cd to listen to at night.

Take care.
Yvonne.

I have a habit of reading several books simultaneously and presently, I'm reading Sherman Alexie's "War Dances," Joe Finder's "Company Man," and Don Winslow's "Savages." Really into Alexie's and Finder's books--I think this is Alexie's finest to date--and Winslow's is okay.

Laura Marcella said...

Cute poem! I'm re-reading "Wizard's First Rule" by Terry Goodkind. I read it in 9th grade, but I remember hardly anything about it. So it's kind of like reading it for the first time again!

I received "Firelight" by Sophie Jordan in the mail today from a blog contest I won (Jen Daiker's), so that's next on my list. I'm super excited to read that one!!! I also recently bought "The Mysterious Benedict Society" by Trenton Lee Stewart and "Ford County" by John Grisham. I can't wait to read all these great books!

Yay for books and literacy!!!

Jemi Fraser said...

I love this poem--did you write it yourself? I hope you did, because it's fabulous!

I just finished Matched today and started TORMENT by Lauren Kate.

Vicki Rocho said...

Cool poem.

I went on a bit of a reading binge -- I usually do when I travel. Hours of uninterrupted reading time! I read First Contact and Brains - a Zombie Memoir (both repped by Janet) and now I am reading Fool by Christopher Moore who is hysterically funny. I try to avoid reading his books in public because he always makes me laugh - loud, rolling, belly laughs that make outsiders turn and stare. Fool is a bit raunchy so if you're easily offended, be cautioned.

DL Hammons said...

I'm reading THE FALL by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro. :)

Robyn Campbell said...

Excellent poem. Did you write it? I would love to think that someday, someone will pick up my book and think of this poem.

I am just finishing up some picture books. I am going to read Glam's book and then Jody's book. YIKES. TBR pile doesn't have a book written by me yet.

Kristi said...

Love the poem!

I'm currently reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver...

Steph Damore said...

The poem reminds me of the movie The Pagemaster and all the books that want to be read. Very cute.

I'm getting ready to start Dark Road to Darjeeling by Raybourn. I recently found the local library and am loving it!
