Weekly Geek #2
Judge a Book By Its Cover!
This week it's all about judging books by their covers! Pick a book--any book, really--and search out multiple book cover images for that book. They could span a decade or two (or more)...Or they could span several countries. Which cover is your favorite? Which one is your least favorite? Which one best 'captures' what the book is about?
For this WG, I went with one of my favorite love stories-The House of Mirth by Edith Warton. Tragic. Sad. Wonderful. I read it periodically.
I think this one is my favorite:
I hope her dress and the pinkish hue of the cover! I also think it's a good representation of Lily.
My least favorite is this one:This one reminds me of the ones I used to buy for a couple of dollars. Great literature on the cheap. But what a boring cover. Who wants to read this?
Are there are novels that you read over and over again?
