Cover Characteristics: Cars!



This week’s Cover Characteristic is CARS!

So, I cheated and included one bus. I’m like that. Plus, I enjoyed that book!

You can join this meme fun at  Sugar and Snark!

My Choices



These are about the only books I could think of with cars on the cover.

Sky Beneath My Feet          My Review


But my favorite car-cover book has to be Here Lies The Librarian!



Since today is the beginning of Flashback Friday–reviews from my old blog, here’s the review:


“Half the books in this library aren’t worth reading”….. says patron
“Read the other half….” says bored librarian.

Thank you, Richard Peck for the marvelous, marvelous Here Lies the Librarian!  A funny book, resonating with issues STILL facing libraries nearly 100 years after the books setting, and includes both Dad’s obscure Indiana birthplace and a character who not only has Mom’s obscure maiden name, but she almost has mom’s equally obscure first name! Great work from a great author! Nothing “young adult” about this–no vampires, or anything except totally believable characters and setting.
