Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen

Honey Santana
Pure of heart and bipolar
Do not fuck with her

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards

Lonely Whangdoodle
Wearing slippers on your hooves
You hide from the world.

Charlotte's Web by E. B. White

Ham is Wilbur's fate
Until Charlotte spins "Some Pig"
Now Wilbur is safe

Love it!

Kafka on the Shore- Haruki Murakami

Kafka runs away
Nakata can talk to cats
Fish fall from the sky

O! Please don't eat me!
Life here is better than home.
Going home now. Bye!

Merwyn Haskett | 46 comments Omoo by Herman Melville

After mutiny
And time in Tahiti's jail
The story goes bland.

Merwyn Haskett | 46 comments Mardi by Herman Melville

This story's too long
They just talk and talk and talk
Dear God kill me please

The Da Vinci Code

The Church's secret
A puzzle hidden in art
Jesus had a kid.

It's a tie for best final line- "Dear God kill me please" and "Jesus had a kid."

The Baby Merchant by Kit Reed

You need a baby
Body won't cooperate
Tom Starbird's your man.

Very nice!

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Checked out for my girl
Whoops! Spilled coffee on the book
Pay at library

OR

It's a love story
Or, is it a fairytale?
Good movie, I heard.

Frodo's Lament

I'm a small hobbit.
Why am I the ring bearer?
Just bad luck, I guess.

Merwyn Haskett | 46 comments Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

I built a Daemon
We were mean to him; He killed
Now we are all dead

or

So many pages
With very little action
And girlish talking

Snow in Olympia (not a book)

It is snowing now!
Lots and lots and lots of snow
Snow is neat and cool.

I just found this gem of a thread again... how's everyone been? It's been quiet around these parts!

Doomsday Book- Connie Willis

Historic research
Comes alive with time travel
Risky business, this
