Readers Dozen – April

Readers, you probably know that we should never judge a book by it’s cover, but that’s definitely easier said than done (even with two clichés in one sentence!). Still we’re asking you to take on that challenge this April by tackling a book with a tacky cover!

Of course, ugly covers are always subjective (but we’re including a couple of links below, anyway), so it’s all up to you to decide the worthiness of what you choose. Maybe it’s a book you inherited from a great-uncle, or a book you picked up at a garage sale, or even one that’s a reprint of a classic you always thought you’d read. For whatever reason, if the cover has been preventing you from trying it out, April’s the time to finally do it!

Then, when you’re done, fill out our online form before May 7. Maybe you’ll find that love at first site is overrated!
