Hello, dear readers. I am just now getting off my Diamond Jubilee stupor.  What a fun weekend it was! Wish I could have been in the UK for the celebrations.

Today’s post is about books (my favorite subject). Do you ever judge a book by its cover? I totally do!

Here are a few beautiful covers I discovered over at The Book Cover Archive.

Speaking of books, what are you reading right now?

Have a lovely day!

  1. How wonderful these books are ! I often grab a book based on the cover art or photo.
    I am reading a wonderful mystery called A Circle of Shadows by Imogen Robertson. It is , I think , the 4th book in her series about a lady and a man who solve mysteries. I cannot describe it in more detail, you have to see for yourself 🙂 I have completely enjoyed each book and hope she just keeps writing and writing .

    lovely covers, i love the milk one! Right now I’m reading The Hours, but so far I haven’t had much of a chance to pick it up

    What lovely covers! I actually picked up my current read, Dwelling Places by Vinita Hampton Wright, for fifty cents at Goodwill primarily because of the cover art. It’s been good so far, though! I love when a cover leads me correctly.

    Just saw this lovely, lovely post. Beautiful covers, and thanks for sharing because I immediately added the first book to my List. I am reading Volume 3 of the Anais Nin Diaries. I discovered these treasures when I read Henry & June a couple of years ago. Since purchasing these diaries at a used bookstore some time back, I have been completely consumed by them. In your love of things French I suspect you’d find them equally enchanting. She writes like a dream because she is lives in awareness of the myth. Do check her out! Be well.

    Im lucky to have found all the books in a series from my library, i’m enjoying “a book a day” from Adrea Camilleri’s inspector montalbano series. Each one is better than the last. I’ve only allowed myself one book a day to prolong the experience as long as possible.

    Beautiful choice!
    Coincidentally I have just been leafing through Faber and Faber Eighty Years of Book Design by Joseph Connolly, picked up for a tenner in Crouch End. Worth every penny.
