Book Blogger Hop: Judging a Book by it’s cover….

New? If you liked to follow you can do so by RSS, email, Facebook, or Twitter!

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This week’s question:  What is the worst cover of a book that you’ve read and loved?

There are probably others that have slipped my mind, but the one I ultimately chose was A Confederacy of Dunces. I just really can’t stand that cover, though it remains as one of my favorite fiction reads of all time.

Jeanine Frost’s Eternal Kiss of Darkness gets an honorable mention here, I liked that book (though it is outside my genre comfort zone so to speak) but loathed the cover.

The second question is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books: What is your favorite thing about book blogging? Book blogging serves two purposes for me (plus a few more, but two make me particularly happy). The first is that it provides a place for me to curate/catalog all of the good books I’ve read and recipes I’ve tried (that is one of the reasons I don’t put negative reviews up). The second is that it provides me a place to talk about books (a feature I am lacking in my personal interactions – despite being a librarian) and on a good day, I get to interact with others who loved a book just as much or as little as I did.

What about you? Worst book cover that hid a great book? Favorite thing about blogging? I’d love to hear…

    I still have to read “Confederacy of Dunces”. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but people who loved it seemed to really love it. Thanks for mentioning this book. Kind of reminds me that I’ve made little progress this year on my “Pulitzer Prize” challenge.

    new follower through email…Pls visit/follow me at . My response was…the Stephanie Plum series covers. I truly love the books, but could do without the colorful jackets. Course, since I own every book in the series and I love them all, the jackets are acceptable by associated love for the books

    The best thing about blogging for me is definitely getting to “chat” with lots of other people who GET IT. I have book-lovin’ friends in real life, but it’s always great to have more.

    Happy Hopping!
