Quote of the day:
There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts. -Charles Dickens
You can never tell a book by its cover.
But then again it can be argued that the outward appearance of a book is equally important. The soul soul, and heart of a book lies in its design -which is the first thing a reader sees be it in a bookshelf or or on-line. When it comes to a book cover the design can be said to be a visual addition to the story within -an important element that must not be overlooked, and many authors are aware of this fact and seem to get it right in that regard -by creating a good design which sends out a clear message through its imagery, typography and perhaps its minimal style.
Having said that here is my book read for the week. My book read for the week is by Paulo Coelho and titled 'The devil and Miss Prym'. It is about a stranger who arrives at a small sleepy village called Viscos, with a proposition that would change the way of life of the ordinary inhabitants. Its a striking tale about the concept of good and evil, and dwells on the morals of humanity.
A wonderful piece of writing from Coelho and a very enjoyable read, which I highly recommend for you to read it.
So what books are you reading this week? Do share.
