My bookshelves have the typical mix of book arrangements, side by side, with a few small vertical stacks (some centered, some as bookends to the side by side), but these gorgeous set ups are tempting me to rethink it!
I might worry about this one falling over, and I don’t know if I’d have the heart to secure them to one another, making them unreadable.
Today I went onto the UK site for Penguin (they often have fun stuff you won’t find on the U.S. site) and was surprised to find a very different cover for the book The Help front and center. While I know publishers regularly have different covers for different markets, it was interesting to see that they chose to go much more literally, with a cover that shows exactly what the book is about. Although I’ve always thought the birds on the U.S. version were cute, I really had no idea what the book was about until I read the back cover.
So which do you prefer? The U.S. version that feels more warm and fuzzy like the overall tone of the book, or the U.K. version that better shows the subject of the book?
