Booklr Questions – Do you judge books by their covers?

Do you judge books by their covers? While I would love to say that I never judge a book by it’s cover, I have to admit that I actually do it a lot.  When I’m browsing books at the local bookstore, I’m not even going to pick up a book to see what it’s about…

#OurProject52 – Centered

I love asymmetry, so centering things has always been hard for me. Even if my design sense tends toward grouping display items in odd numbers.  I did manage to find a few things around the office that were centered though, at least if you looked at them from the right angle. I still think that…

Booklr Questions – What are your favorite book covers?

What are your favorite book covers? I am absolutely in love with Orion Publishing’s new hardcover imprints of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels.

Booklr Questions – Do you reread books?

Do you reread books? I certainly haven’t reread every book I’ve ever read. But, there are a few books that I find myself rereading on a fairly regular basis. I tend to read my copy of A Wrinkle in Time about once a year. It’s a book that I’ve enjoyed reading since I was first…

Exciting News

I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be an aunt!  My sister (and her husband) are having a baby.  And I got to take the announcement photos.  Since they posted them on Facebook yesterday, I think it’s safe for me to share them now. We had a lot of fun doing this quick little…
