yes, it's me again...back for another fabulously shallow post in which i judge new books by their covers.
This week, I will certainly NOT be shelling out my hard-earned dollars on this book:
It's Everyman, by Philip Roth. Yeah, Phil, I know you're a pretty big name, and I heard that this book is all about how it sucks to get really old and see your friends die (yes, Covergirl reads the New York Times too--well, skims it at least--) but jeez, does that mean you have to make your cover look a like funeral? Heck, even the etiquette books say it's ok to pay your last respects in navy or even a pretty yet subdued burgundy...maybe accessorized with a chic hat...
So cheer up, Phil! You're still a player! You're still selling books and winning awards! Enjoy life for once, and would it kill you to put some daisies or a nice slice of pie or a cute little dog on your next book's jacket?
Covergirl WILL be buying this book:
Total adorability! Kudos to you, Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler, authors of Scrambled Eggs at Midnight...and the nameless person who made your book's look!
It's white, it's bright, and it's very all right with Covergirl. It looks so tasty...I might even read this one!
Ciao for now! See ya next week...
