Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

12 Nov

I don’t know about you, but I will freely admit that I occasionally judge books by their covers.  In fact, I’ll often think, “That’s a terrible cover – what were they thinking?” or “Now that’s a great cover – I can’t wait to read it.”  Unfair or not, I can’t be the only one who does this, right?  While I don’t feel too bad routinely judging books by their appearance, I do wonder if our focus on aesthetics can sometimes keep us from reading something really fantastic or mislead us into picking up something awful.

So, in the spirit of not judging a book by its cover, for November, everyone in the library’s Main Street Book Club chose a different book.  All the books were wrapped so that they couldn’t see the cover, title, or author, but they were able to read a brief synopsis and a few reviews.  We will be meeting tomorow, Tuesday, November 13th at 6:00 p.m. in the Library Community Room to discuss our various books (note that this is a week earlier than our regular meeting time due to Thanksgiving).

There’s good news for those of you who did not have time to pick up a book.  There are still several at the Information Desk if you want to participate in the book club tomorrow or if you simply want a new book to read and you’re feeling in the mood to take a chance.  We’ll also leave a list of the books that were read this month if you’re looking for your next book to read!
