#CoverCrush: The Typewriter's Tale


I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers. The cover is usually what first captures my attention when browsing Goodreads or Netgalley. Actually, in all honesty, it isn't just usually, it's pretty much all the time. The cover determines if I look at the synopsis and reviews.


I learned how to type on a typewriter. I took typing classes in high school and we had both electric and manual typewriters. The first couple of college papers that I wrote were done on an electric typewriter. I love the title of this book. I love this cover image. This woman, who is sitting before a typewriter, a stack of complete papers next to her, a current sheet in the roller, waiting for those next words to coalesce into sentences and structure. What is she working on? Is this an article for a newspaper or the manuscript of the next best seller? What is the tale this typewriter can tell? 

What about you? Any book covers capture your attention this week?
