Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I read Nine Coaches Waiting along with Holly and we both really enjoyed it – watch out for our Retro Friday reviews tomorrow. It’s the first Mary Stewart novel that I read but most definitely won’t be the last. Since I think the edition that I got has a pretty cover, I thought I’d take some pictures of the details and feature it today.
Hello, girl in a retro dress! I think her dress is cute, plus it has pockets. I love dresses with pockets. Although it looks like she’s missing her right hand in the picture (hmm reminds me of a certain favorite character). I like the Eiffel Tower detail as well even though the novel is only partially set in Paris. I think the purple background is also cute. Here’s a shot of the cover as a whole:
Don’t you think it’s lovely? The rest of Mary Stewart’s novels are just as pretty as this one, can’t wait to get copies of some of them. What about the rest of you, any pretty book purchases lately?
