Last week B and I were in Barnes and Noble, where they had a display of hardback classic novels with the most gorgeous covers. I could not resist buying these two; I haven’t read either and wouldn’t mind owning them. Plus I just couldn’t say no to these covers.
The pages are edged in gold, too. These will look so good on my shelf!
I absolutely buy specific versions of books because I like the covers. As soon as I saw these versions of Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy I knew I needed them! I still think they are some of the most gorgeous books I own.
It’s your turn to fess up. 🙂 Do any of you have specific editions that you like because they are pretty? Or even bought a book you haven’t read before just because you liked the cover?
