Well Covered

A lot of effort goes into picking reading material for the subway (in this instance, I’m referring to both public transit AND the popular American sandwich chain). You want something engrossing enough to pass the time, but not so engrossing that you miss your stop (or your opportunity to turn your boring turkey club into an amazing value meal!), you want a book that’s somewhat mindless (as to distract you from your fellow passenger’s rotisserie chicken that keeps bumping you in the face) and, lastly, you want a book whose cover suggests one of two things: A.) “People who read me are so smart and/or interesting!” or B.) “Don’t look at me.”

So, naturally, I’ve been reading a book thats cover (front and back) looks like this:

Very classy. Very subtle. The only thing that could make it MORE classy and MORE subtle is if it were boldly embossed with the words "GAME OF THRONES," right?

(Speaking of book covers, check out these amazing F. Scott Fitzgerald jackets featured by Maia on her beautiful inspiration blog Conundrum)
