On The Cover #45

 On The Cover is a feature I am going to doing every now and again. I will pick one book cover that sticks out, is really interesting or just beautiful – I particularly like a book cover that has a stunning landscape.

So come on Book Cover Lovers, share with me your favourite book covers.Read more >>>
