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.
On my last trip home, I grabbed my copy of The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly because it was chosen for our next YAckers discussion. Now, I find it a little funny that I’ve had my copy of this book for YEARS and I still haven’t read it. I can’t remember the exact date but it was probably in 2007 or 2008, I know I bought it when I was still in my first job. I didn’t have a blog then and I thought the cover, designed by paper-cutting artist Rob Ryan, looked pretty. The premise looked like something I’d enjoy reading as well. Since I think the book looks great, I thought I’d take some shots before reading it.
How about you, have you encountered any books with beautiful covers lately? Do you have books that have been waiting around in your TBR pile for years now? And let me know if you’ve read this book, it would be good to know your thoughts about it.
