Karli Nabours-Palermo - Lake Charles, Louisiana (USA):
This book leans slightly to the left.
This book is choosy about its reader. This book will not be
sold at a price you could afford.
The 1979 edition of this book has nothing but bad things to
say about previous editions of the same.
This microeconomics textbook expands by two pages for each one that I
This book would have come along seven years too late, so I
wrote it myself.
Christopher Good - Sparks, Nevada (USA):
This book opened the world to me when I was 15 years
This book moved from shelf to shelf with me, across 2,500 miles.
This book is long overdue to my high school library
But when I'm the last five people who checked it out, I
figure it belongs to me.
I can recite for you most of the poems in this book
Nellie Wong - San Francisco, California (USA):
This book is my body. My brains had nothing to do with
My skin provides the cover. This book itches. Oh, it itches.
Words resist being under, between covers. This book seeks liberation.
This book leaps, a black panther hungry for love.
Devour this book, spit it out. May the words multiply.
Alfred J Bruey - Jackson, MI (USA):
This book is thirsty, always thirsty. This is often an early indication
of diabetes. In this case, it indicates a need for a drink.
Water is fine, but it will accept a small glass of wine
with its dinner.
This book is insanely jealous of any book that gets checked out
and taken to a nice friendly home. It will make it worth
your while if you check it out and keep renewing it forever.
This book is lazy. All its friends beg it to do some
work but it just sits there on the shelf keeping the other
books on edge. No one can get it to turn over a
This book knows too much.
This book knows very little but it pretends to know everything. It
doesn't contain the sentence "I don't know."
Sandeep Gautam - gurgaon, haryana (India):
This book is boring; but you'll read it. All questions in the
exam come from this book.
This book talks of "Third World Poverty and the World Wide Web".
It is authored by retired beureacrats who cant shit in thier luxurious
offices anymore. It has a peculiar golden hallow around its name.
This book is as pure as a virgin. No one will ever
interpret it. No one will ever read it. It carries the fatwa
on its head. Its calligraphed neatly on the cover page, with
the name of Mohammed spelled correctly (in Pure Arabic) .
This is the book I carried in my pocket yesterday to lend
to Patricia. It still lies in my cabinet. This is the book
with which she'll fall in love. I must give Patty a buzz.
I'm already feeling so phoney.
Sarolina Shen Chang - Canton, Michigan (USA):
This is the book about the old woman who kept removing bricks
from her house, for air. The bricks self-built themselves another house
in the month of two moons.
This book is one of the bricks the old woman removed.
It has her finger prints and DNA.
This is the book about coldness, such as the planes kidnaped by
the snow storm on the runway for 8 to 12 hours with
passengers on board. The passengers were awarded vouches which would automatically
expire if the passengers talked to CNN reporters.
This book is one of the vouchers that expired, even it hadn't
uttered a word to CNN or CNBC about the kidnaped planes.
This book is the answer to this multiple choice question. None

Susan Moskop - Memphis, Tennessee (USA):
This book will end badly.
The war will end, but no one in this book will survive.
Katherine Borghardt - Ottawa, KS (USA):
This book makes you grouchy
when you stay inside your head
instead of going out to play.
When higher logic prevails
you find yourself looking for more than the stimulation
of electronic poetry,
becoming tense and agitated
because you haven't read the damn thing yet today
and can't wait to.

Kevin W. Grossman - Santa Cruz, CA (USA):
This book is about "missing persons."
Its pages are dry rippled from readers' tears, full of black and
white photos and short descriptive passages. It contains multiple prologues, unwritten epilogues,
and a comprehensive annotated index. It's a binder with removable pages, and
its cover is stained and warped from lengthy exposure.
You won't find this book in the library, however.
You'll find it displayed in the windows of convenience stores, nailed to
telephone poles, and pinned to community bulletin boards. Feel free to
photocopy and distribute this book amongst yourselves.
