Spring Reads

My Kindle is locked and loaded with two new books. Both The Folded Clock and The Children’s Crusade received wonderful reviews and, as shallow as it sounds, I love the beautiful covers.

  • Just came home from the bookstore with “The Children’s Crusade” before I read this post. It looks great.

  • I don’t find cover appreciation shallow at all, for me it helps set the stage for the story. These look great, please share your thoughts after reading!

  • I wanted to add something, that I see Colleen already did. I love book cover art, and often buy used hardcover out of print novels, that I want to read, just so I can have the original covers. I find it very appealing, and when browsing in a bookstore, if I’m just at a table of books – it’s the cover that drives me to pick one up to see what it’s like. Not shallow.

  • My friend who is a literary agent would concur.
