Tuesday Thingers

Today's Question from Wendi's Book Corner: Do you have any missing covers (they show as a plain gray book)? Did you have a favorite view (title, author, date entered)? Do you have any favorite covers? If so, is there anything they have in common?
First of all I really really wanted to put the book covers of my entire LT library in this post but it would take up way too much space, so I have only included those sections where I have missing book covers.
My missing book covers are The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff, the first below, and People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks.  I have now fixed them.  
Being an organizational sort of person I like to sort and view by date entered rather than by author or title.  Then I can see what I may have read/reviewed recently or a long time ago. Sorting this way the first book I ever added was The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory and the most recent addition was...none other than The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory.  What are the odds!
My favourite book covers are below, with The Thirteenth Tale probably being my most favourite.  I guess I like the colors red and green the most, I like pretty, striking or interesting covers.   Can I just say that I really dislike when the cover art cuts off a person's face...what is the point of this? On the left sidebar toward the bottom of my blog I have a Picasa album of Eye Catching Book Covers...take a look.


  1. I love sumptuous-looking book covers, too!

    Just wanted to stop by and say that you have an award waiting for you here!

  2. I love your widget that shows favorite covers. :) I love them!!

    I also love the missing cover image that you have - I'll have to go back and figure out how to change mine. and yes, I find it quite annoying to have faces cut off.

    Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week. ~ Wendi

  3. I buy so many books because I love the covers! I relly like the Dracula cover, I've never seen it and it's beautiful.
