Cover CRACK… What Book Covers Are You Jonesing Over?
to have a strong need, desire, or craving for something.
There are certain book covers that for whatever reason draw my attention. Seriously. I can be browsing books and particular covers can stop me in my tracks and cause me to pick up the book and read the synopsis.
It should. Even though we are told to never judge a book by its cover, I have to believe that most of us, when put in a room of books to browse, it is the cover that is the next logical step to wondering if a book is a good fit for you.
That being said…
for me the cover crack that catches my eye is at this time: Houses and Food. I know. I know. Lets break this down.
Covers with an old home on them, a mansion, a street filled with homes, even buildings (barns, sheds, maybe a hardware store). I think what draws me in are the possibilities. What is happening in that place or what will happen? Who lives there? What secrets do they have?
Here are a few samples of endearing book covers. (*Note – these are not necessarily books I have read, but these are book covers I am drawn to)
(actually in this house category is one of my all time favorite books)
I love reading about food and I am not just talking about cook books. I mean fictional fun stories and memoirs of traditional cooking, starting a restaurant, creating culture, famous chefs…. I love it all.
Your up. What covers do you find call to you?
