Cover Love: part 91 – Envelopes

In my 91st installment of ‘Cover Love‘, I thought I’d do a post about envelopes on book covers.  In our modern times, letter writing and ‘snail mail’ is almost obsolete – which is very sad. There is nothing like the thrill of receiving a letter in the post….

They say you can never have a second chance to make a good first impression. A book’s cover does just that – gives a first impression. A good cover can make a reader pick up a book. A bad cover can leave the book at the very bottom of a dusty pile.

The covers of novels entice the reader to enter a different world. Covers are, after all, the way the publisher ‘hooks‘ the reader into choosing one book over countless others.

These titles encompass a wide variety of genres.  Enjoy!

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

Please let me know in the comments.

And don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 90 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    The only one I read is Guernsey. However, I think I have a couple of these on my TBR, so I will have to check. If I don’t, there are a few I will be adding. Interesting that so many look like thrillers. Another great addition to your cover love series, Lynne.
