Seven Books

You may have seen (or taken part in) that recent Facebook trend to post seven covers, one per day, from books you love. You aren’t supposed to offer any explanation, but you are supposed to tag other book lovers so that your newsfeed becomes filled with books instead of pictures of things like your ex-girlfriend’s dog’s third birthday party. 

I was recently tagged, but instead of making seven distinct Facebook posts in which I feel smug about how I am more literary (and therefore better in every conceivable way) than you, I’m going to make one blog post and then post THAT to Facebook. I don’t have the time or the wherewithal to spread this thing out over seven days, but I do like to feel smug and literary.

So, without further ado, here are some book covers. (And some brief explanations because I’m not always great at following directions.)

Shout out to Ann M. Martin for 1.) teaching me about raising guide dog puppies, and 2.) convincing me that I will suddenly develop Glaucoma and go blind.

If Toad isn’t a thinly-veiled metaphor for the dangers of drugs, then he is, at the very least, a user.
