A Beautifully Ratty Book Cover

Look at this wonder book cover. The emotional feeling this book cover gives me would be hard to duplicate with a digital cover, don’t you think?

The tattered edges, the torn spine, the creased cover. Just beautiful. I picked up this masterpiece at a bookshop in Virginia for only 10 cents. I had wanted to read “The Ugly American” for quite a while, so when I saw it, I jumped at the chance. It was the best 10 cents I ever spent as it went on my favorite books of all time list.

Sometimes there are hidden gems in strange places.

(By the way, Beauty Rising is on sale for .99 cents right now. Not a bad deal, either! 🙂
