Currently reading:

Sold To The Highest Bidder by Donna Alward

Do you judge a book by its cover?

Sometimes yes! I have picked books with wonderful covers but nothing much in the way of a story. And some great novels have rotten covers.

I volunteered at a Nicholas Sparks event this week - I have a feeling that book will be a bestseller.

I like Michael Baron. I hope you enjoy your books.

Great list of books! I'm definitely going to check out the Pixel of Ink site. Happy reading this week!

I read one of Sparks books..that was enough for me.
As to covers..I love a nice cover and I think that is the whole point of cover art, to attract a certain audience. There are so many books and so little time, you have to get down the choices in any way you can!

A fat mailbox with nice mixed reading as well. On covers, yes I am a bit cheesy like that. Like nice covers.

I really like it that you are reading a book called Anything, because I'm reading one called Nothing. :-)
