    I don’t know if I “buy it” because of the cover as much as I have def NOT bought it because of the cover….because it did not engage me enough to even pick it up off the self…or to even read the back….then it doesnt get bought……
    I like all of the ones you have featured on the blog, I haven’t read them-but am now interested. *smile*

    The cover and name of “the hole in our gospel” caught my attention because there is no image of the Bible on the cover…but of the earth as a whole/hole….

    Well, “Written On the Body” and most Jeanette Winterson books are amazing, so it makes sense that the cover is too. And well, growing up mixed race in America can be both beautiful and intense, so that gorgeous cover of “Waking Up American” accurately portrays both that beauty and intensity. Covers have to catch your attention; right now I am reading an incredible book called “City of Widows: An Iraqi Woman’s Account of War and Resistance” by Haifa Zangana and the worst part is that you can barely read the title on the front cover… hardly any one can see what I am reading in public… sometimes just by seeing covers on my morning commute I write down titles…
