judging books by their covers

via Better Book Titles

"This page is for people who have trouble slogging through the information on book jackets or feel intimidated by the title and cover itself. How many times have you perused the cover of a novel only to rub your sore eyes and realize you've learned NOTHING from the book's title?!"


(aka Lolita)


(aka Imperial Bedrooms)


(aka Elements of Style)



(aka Ulysses)

For some reason my public library rejected all of these for suggested purchase. They're my tax dollars...geesh.

Considering they just caught a serial stabber that had terrorized our area, I am quite happy judging books by their covers and avoiding any that may harm me.

Loved it!

I am not quite sure about the Lolita example, but I do absolutely agree with the Ulysses version.

Never was I more disappointed with a book. That thing was an exercise on style, not a novel.
