Susan Orlean’s The Library Book jumped off the shelf with its bright red cover, making me wonder what other red covered books I could find. No need to wrap a book with a red cover for Christmas – maybe just add a big bow.
Identifying books by their cover is not new. A shelf in the Farmington Public Library in Massachusetts helps readers find books by the red cover. Social media lit up with the picture on Twitter in February of librarians in front of a display of red books with the blazing poster – “I Don’t Remember the Title, But the Cover Was Red.”
Here are my picks – based strictly on judging a book by its cover. What red covers would you add?
