I don’t have much to write about lately, so I am throwing out another cover collection for your enjoyment. I really like all of these covers, but I think my favorite is #6 – I love the skull and the horseshoe. My grandpa has similar decor on his barn so it reminds me of the ranching life. How about you? What cover do you like best?
Here are a few links that caught my eye this week:
I’m glad to see that Sarah Waters also enjoys one of my favorite Persephones.
A profile of double Booker winner Hilary Mantel.
20 classic designs for a home library.
And for something silly – watch Benedict Cumberbatch (star of Sherlock and Parade’s End) dance to Thriller at a wedding.
I hope I will feel up to talking about books again soon. I think the changing seasons and weather are harder on our bodies and brains than we realize. We’ve had several people at the library catch horrible colds and everyone seems to be suffering from a general lack of energy and an overall malaise. I am reading several riveting books right now – The Moonstone, Sister by Rosamund Lupton and Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes. Maybe suspense novels are best when you’re not feeling your best!
