Feature & Follow Friday - Book Spine Poetry & GFC on it's way out completely?

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! This is a blog hop that allows bloggers to gain new followers and find some awesome new blogs to follow themselves!

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host has a blog that they feature each week!

So, if you're a blogger, come join in on the fun!

Here's today's question -

Q:  Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.

A: This is kind of an eclectic mix of books, but I liked the poem that it created!

The Power of a Whisper
Welcoming the Stranger

Mostly Harmless

The Whisper
Lost and Found

I keep hearing that it has been announced that GFC (Google Friend Connect) will no longer be available after July 1st 2013. Most of you have heard the news already and have assimilated over to Bloglovin'.

But did you know that you can easily import the blogs you are following with GFC into your Bloglovin account?

You can read more about Bloglovin' and importing blogs here:

You can't import your followers, though. That is up to the follower!
So, if you're a follower, be sure to join Bloglovin' and import all the blogs you follow so you don't miss everyone's posts and giveaways!

I'd very much appreciate it if my GFC followers continued to follow me through Bloglovin'!

P.S I stole this post from  All We Have is Stories, who stole it from Lazy Day Literature.  


  1. Lovely poem. :) We have the same name. Hehehe. I don't know, I just love finding people who have the same name as me. Excuse my shadiness. XD New follower via Bloglovin! Also, thanks for the tip. I had no idea that that was possible.

  6. Oh I really like it! I also like how clear the picture turned out and the contrasts of the spines in the image. Great job! Thank you so much for visiting my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  7. Hi-I already follow you on Bloglovin which is how I viewed this post :) I just wanted to say thanks for letting us know that GFC is ending soon. I have just restarted a book blog this month and had no clue, sigh... I will wind up losing just about all my followers. Again, thanks, and btw, nice poem :D

  8. OOoh very nice! I guess I was lazy this morning--although I do admit that I do do these posts wayyyy too early in the morning--and just took a pic of a TBR stack, one of many. So my poem doesn't seem to have a nice flow. Wish they'd post the question in advance so I could put more time into these posts. But still fun!!

    Here's my Follow Friday
