Cover Trouble

Leave a comment

 

I took my dog for a walk this morning and this is what I was thinking about on a beautiful Sunday morning: I want to read Tina Fey’s new book Bossypants, but the cover is a stumbling block.  I know this is incredibly shallow, but there it is. The photo disturbs my sense of equilibrium even though I know that runs counter to the advice I give to students everyday about “judging books by their covers.” Yesterday, when I saw the book in Barnes & Noble, I had to look quickly past it even though I’m sure it’s a funny and interesting book. This could be a case for the audio version – but I need to hide the box.
