The World of Blogging - Part 3

Book Blogger Hop

Well, another Thanksgiving and in spite of all the warnings from previous years, we have once again gorged ourselves on food.  Quite literally, a neon indigo-ish mixture of blueberry cheesecake and green bean casserole is oozing out our pores (that was pretty discussing, sorry).  Seriously, even getting out of bed is going to present a considerable challenge today.  Our Hope is that we’ll be able to burn off some of those extra calories during this week’s HOP!
This week’s question is: What is your favorite book cover?

This is such a good question because there are so many good covers out there.  If we (Evan) were forced into making a hasty decision it would have to be The Hobbit. 
The Hobbit: Or There and Back Again

Not very original or thought provoking but there you have it.  If you’ll excuse us now, we’re going to go and lovingly hold the copy on our bookshelves…
As always, thanks to Jennifer over at Crazy-For-Books for hosting the book party!

Also, we’re particularly fond of followers on this blog… give us try and we will be sure to return the favor!

    I hope you have a chance to visit one of my blogs: LibrarysCatBooks and Never Forget: Holocaust Resources !!


  4. Hopping by to return the visit and follow! I love all covers of the Hobbit, including this weird 70's one with an emu on the cover...the Hobbit just improves all art. :-)

  5. This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!

    Which book cover did I pick? I invite you to hop over to my blog and see for yourself.

    Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend!

    Your newest GFC Follower,

  14. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your post made me think about the cover of The Hobbit. I know my copy isn't like that one!

  15. That is one of the nicest Hobbit covers. My favorite cover dates back to 1987. Stop by to see what it is. Happy Blog Hop.

  16. Hi,
    Just hopping by and following through. A nice cover choice, I have an original copy of The Hobbit and the cover is falling off the poor thing.

  20. The Hobbit! Wonderful choice. If pressed, I just don't know what I would say my favorite book cover is... there are just too many!

  21. I think the illustration on that Hobbit cover are fantastic. I love that sort of thing, if it's not a photograph or photoshopped person.
