Books On Books: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

I somehow missed this series. When I discovered it a few years ago I fell in love with it. A book about reading and characters that come to life from their books is heaven!

I havent read the other books in the series yet but I loved for this one that the hero is a young girl called Meggie. I also loved Elinor's house and her book collection.

A really great read.

Books On Books : Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

This classic, haunting novel never seemed a reality for me until I started book blogging. When I joined Banned Books Week I was shocked at how many novels are trying to be kept from schools and in some cases even stores.

It makes some of the elements in this book a possibility. Every time I read this book I am touched by the message about the power of books. If you haven't read this yet bump it to the top of your list!

Books On Books: The Clothing of Books by Jhumpa Lahiri

Recently one of my archived E-books had a cover change. I was really disappointed!! I loved the previous cover of the book. I didn't know that could happen with e-books.

So much of what I love about books usually has to do with the covers. Especially books I don't know anything about.

In The Clothing of Books we learn about the process of cover development from a writers point of view. It suprised me to learn that author's don't have full carte blanche when it comes to their covers.

Lahiri also shares her insight in how covers of books differ from country to country. Lahiri has a passion for books and covers that readers can really relate to.

A really nice essay.
