#BoutofBooks 9.0 Challenge: Found Poem

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 6th and runs through Sunday, January 12th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 9.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

Challenge hosted by Pen in Her Hand.

Just choose a novel from any genre, print or ebook, that you’re reading or have finished. Pick a number between 1 and 10, and you’re ready to start!

1. Flip to a page at random. Using your trusty number, count down that many lines. Then count in that many words. Write that word down. Repeat this process until your have fourteen words.

2. Delete two words and add in two words of your own (I decided not to do this and just work with the words I found).

3. Now arrange your words any way you like to finish your found poem.
