I judge a book by its cover

I’ve always been slightly obsessed with books, especially ones with interesting or unique covers. I’m a bit of a book hoarder (although I like to think of myself as a “collector), so whenever I go to a rummage sale I usually make a beeline for the books. While the content does come into play when considering a purchase, it’s usually the spine and cover that really sells me.

These are some of my favorite finds:

I don’t mind a book that’s a little worn –  to me, that just gives it more history and character.

On the topic of books, someday soon I’ll break down and order these beauties I shared last week. I’m just not sure how I’d explain that purchase to my husband right now. He’s not quite on the same page as me with the book obsession (bad pun definitely intended).




  1. Hi Jane! New to your blog. : ) I love old books with great covers too. I have a bunch of those
    Reader’s Digest books myself, oh and old encyclopedias. Love those.
