It’s how I pick books, actually. If the cover looks intriguing, I’ll usually pick it up, read the blurb, and buy the book (or write it down for future purchase). The problem comes when I accidentally throw out the list of potential future purchases and all I can remember is what the cover of the book looked like. Currently, I’m searching through Barnes & Noble’s website, trying desperately to find a book cover. All I remember is that it was white with a small silhouette of a little girl towards the top-middle. The other problem with this search is that I don’t even remember if I had wanted this particular book. The cover is just burned into my memory. I hope that this search is not for naught. I think a trip to Barnes & Noble might be in my future….
Speaking of books, I’m going to need some good recommendations. I’m leaving for Florida in a week, and have many hours in the car ahead of me. I’ve read everything I own, and have only purchased one new book (Spooky Little Girl, by Laurie Notaro). What do you recommend?
