It’s Friday! I’m on the tail end of my Pre-Calc class and counting my blessings. I started this session (and spent the first week) in tears and stressing because I didn’t think I’d be able to do it – yet here I am, week 6 out of 8 and holding a 99.15% in the class with one test down. I’m living proof that it’s possible, with enough desire and application of oneself, to learn anything as I’ve NEVER been a math person.
This week though some fun titles came across my desk so I wanted to talk a little bit about the power of cover and title. If you are anything like me, a pretty cover will catch your eye. However, a pretty cover does not necessarily mean fantastic book. I’m sure you can think of a few – so there’s no need for me to name them here. Also, a bad cover doesn’t necessarily mean a bad book either. So why are we so attracted and tempted to buy pretty covers?
But even more than a pretty cover – a unique, interesting name gets me. Check these titles out:
Everything about those titles screams to me “READ THIS NOW” and I won’t to.. oh, I want to. (In fact.. I may have picked up Swamplandia! yesterday without even seeing what it was about and brought it home).
What quirky titles have caused you to abandon all caution and bring the book home?
