"Never judge a book by its cover." I know that it's not right to prejudge the worth of something by its appearance, but I cannot seem to read a book that has a cover I don't like. Thank goodness I liked the covers on the books that I read this weekend!
I have been seeing commercials for the movie "The Help" that will be in theaters on August 10th, and I have seen the book at an airport store. I never really thought too much about the movie or the book. While shopping at Costco last weekend, I decided to browse the book section. "The Help" a novel by Kathryn Stockett was stacked high, and I picked up the book so, I could read the synopsis. While I was reading the back cover, a woman told me what a wonderful book it was. I decided to take a chance. I enjoyed this book very much, and will see the movie when it hits the theater.
I always miss the characters in a book for several days after I finish reading any book. Does anyone else have this happen to them after finishing a book?
While perusing my facebook page, I saw a post about "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt" by Beth Hoffman. I went to our libraries home page and checked for availability. One copy was just waiting for me, off I went to check out this book. Saturday afternoon into the late evening I sat and read. First thing Sunday morning I made a cup of coffee and sat down and finished the book. Loved it!
I now realize that not only do I judge a book by its cover, I also listen to what other peoples opinions are about books. For your summer reading, I recommend these two books. Has anyone else read these books and loved them like I did? Or perhaps you didn't like them. Let me know, leave a comment.
I'm looking for a good book to read when I go on vacation next week.
Any suggestions? Remember the cover has to be pretty, and you have to love it.
