interesting book covers

You know the phrase “Never judge a book by it’s cover?” Not true. Covers are often the first impression we have of a book — and first impressions are everything. They influence whether we pick the book up, whether or not we read the book, and even our initial opinion.

And let me tell you. There are some fantastic covers out there. If you didn’t know, I actually work at the Emory Libraries as a temp in the Stacks Division, which means I shelve more books in a daily basis than you can imagine. And the interesting book covers that I see? Sometimes, they’re just too great not to share.

There’s something absolutely fabulous about  plaid jacket, a wide belt, and a floppy hat. Nothing classier for a book cover.

Creeper goat is totally into your nightly romance.

Honest? It’s just a great illustration.

Can you find the pokeball? Gotta catch ’em all!

The best advice Morgan ever gave me for my make up was to never use blue eyeshadow. She said it would make me look like a prostitute. But now that I think about it, I kinda want to learn to do my make up from this chick. I also want all the sorority girls who make the “duck face” to know this is what they really look like.


We’ll let the book speak for itself with the best excerpt…ever:

Was I an egoless starfish?
No, my needs, my needs
Have always been needy.
