Cover Love: part 96 – Beds

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. What is so appealing about ‘beds‘ on a book cover? Why is it chosen so frequently? You be the judge.

The average person spends about 26 years sleeping in their life which equates to 9,490 days or 227,760 hours. Surprisingly, we also spend 7 years trying to get to sleep. That’s 33 years or 12,045 days spent in bed!Well there you have it!  Lots and lots of beds.  Some inviting… and some not so inviting.  Were there more than you imagined?  Have you read any of these titles?

Don’t forget to check out any of the other previous 95 installments of Cover Love, many of which have been updated since they were first published.

    I am rather surprised that there are so many books with beds on the cover. There are some on here that I actually have on my TBR. Great post, Lynne.

    Our Souls At Night is my favourite cover. Very minimalist.
