Judging a Book by Its Cover

You know old adages often have a lot of wisdom behind them, especially the ever-popular "don't judge a book by its cover". There are many wonderful books out there that maybe don't look like much but once you've opened it up and begun reading you are just hooked. Others lure you in with a great picture, font or graphics and you wish there was a way to demand a refund of your time from the author. Sometimes, however a cover is just so great that even if the inside turns out less than you had hoped you would still be pleased just by the pleasure you get from looking at it.

These books, though I have not yet read them, bring me pleasure whenever I look at them in the shop because of their great covers and frontpieces, so I thought that I would share them with you!
