Spot the Empire Librarian's blog

Welcome to a librarian's online musings on libraries, literature and information media.

If you like book covers as much as we like book covers v. 2.0

Admittedly, I purchase a large number of books  for our library patrons to enjoy.  I make every attempt to purchase a variety of   authors, from different genres and view points in order to build a balanced collection from a variety of professional review sources.   I know not to judge a book by its cover,  though sometimes the artwork does draw me in.  There, I admitted it. I confess. I like the artwork.

Paste Magazine has complied a list of book cover artwork ( so far in 2015) which will ‘wow’ the reader ……catch the eye and intrigue the mind, ensuring that readers will snatch them from library shelves.  A few of my favorites can be found here.  Check our Lagrange Library shelves for these titles for your summer reading pleasure.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to my community. I love books, reading with my son, properly placed apostrophes, canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
