Here are the books I just couldn't pass up of late (and I tell you why their covers intrigued me, in the spirit of one of the books I recommend). Let us know if you've read any of them and what you thought. The only one I've tucked into thus far is How to Read Literature Like a Professor (I'll tell you what I think of it so far below).
|I've heard really good reviews of this book, and the cover, I mean come on. It looks like a Bell Jar for the new generation of high-waisted-jean wearers. It also makes me want to run out and replace the Docs I so mistakenly got rid of years ago.|
|If I'm being honest, this cover is a little underwhelming. But I really want to know what Bone Clocks are. That's enough to make me want to buy it. A snappy title. Why can I not impress upon my students the importance of a good title?|
|Honestly, put Neil Gaiman's name on a book, and I'll buy it. End of story.|
