The Week’s Most Popular Posts: June 1-7, 2013

We’ve all had conversations about whether the cover of a book influences you to read it or not; I firmly believe the title works hand in hand with this.

NOW! — something anyone who blogs about books comes to deal with eventually. They make a sale by making me want to hang out with their words for extended periods of time. They make a sale by being, you know, interesting.
