Here's an idea for you! Check out what Nina Katchadourian has done with her bookshelves!

It's like "magnetic poetry" but with the spines of real books instead. How are your bookshelves arranged? Some people arrange their bookshelves by genre, others by size, others by color. Most bookshelves are just sloppy arrangements of books in no order at all. At our house we have our own system...books are shelved mostly by genre. It makes it much easier for us to find what we're looking for.

Perhaps I'll follow Nina's lead and arrange my books' spines to create full sentences, poems, important ideas or great proclamations! That's a sure fire way to drive myself nuts. But it would be fun!
