Like a velvet wrapped chocolate box, book covers are important. They should convey a message, scream ‘Pick Me!’, enticing the reader to turn it over and read the blurb. Yet, how many times have you been disappointed or surprised by the that promise? I have.
I love the surprise of the powdered sugar coated cover filled with a nutty crunch and rich chocolate suspense.
Or a dark cocoa dusted cover that is full of bright colored sticky situations with a burst of sweetness.
How about a firm, smooth cover of bitter-sweet chocolate only to be grabbing for a napkin to catch the cream weeping from that delightful center?
So next time you start to skip over a book, take a bite first. Remember, the true soul of a book is found in the author’s story. Covers sell the first click, but the first words, the ending whisper sell that book and the next. Some will not be to your taste, but the experience of your taste buds will expand and guide you to the perfect chocolate… um book.
Please tell me your about your latest sensory delight.
Have fun reading. AND DON”T FORGET THE CHOCOLATE
