Judging a book by my covetousness


Look at that book cover. I think it’s beautiful. I really want to read the book, which sounds a bit mind bending, and I have three choices. The first is to buy the hardback, but uff. Lugging. The second is to wait for the paperback but uff, waiting. The third is to get it on Kindle. But uff, no beautiful cover.

So I’m going to wait for the paperback, because I am drawn to the cover so much and I can, I think, wait. Interesting, I bought Whispers Under Ground in hardback because I love the covers and, it being part of a series I’m eager to keep up with, I couldn’t wait.

So, good work publishers. Keep giving us books that are desirable as objects and we’ll keep buying them in physical form. You’re not down yet.
