Don’t Judge Me!

Booklists, Random

Reading is full of judgement, perceptions, and critiques. But the one aspect of a book that comes under fire is the book cover. Not going to lie I totally judge a book by its cover. As humans, I think, it is in our nature to judge. We judge what is right and wrong, what is acceptable and what isn’t, what books are suitable for our tastes and which aren’t.

This post isn’t about our judgements, or the fact that as a reader I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. It is about, however, my favorite book covers.
