Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop …. 19/11/2011


This is a fun meme for the weekends, count Friday and Monday as part of your weekend and have even more fun!

“This is a weekly meme, where you can get to display all those beautiful, funny, crazy and even those that make you think book covers you come across each week. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love looking at different book covers. You may not be able to judge a book by its cover, but they are sure fun to look at.”

The Blog Hop is hosted by Yvonne, over at ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog‘ and the rules for taking part are pretty simple:

1. Cross to ‘Socrates’ Book Review Blog’. Take the button at the top of her post and post it on your blog.

2. Chose a book cover of your choice and post it. (You can post as many covers as you’d like.)

3. Sign up with Mr. Linky at the bottom of the page. Please use the url that links directly to your cover art post.

4. Visit other blogs on the list to see what covers they are featuring this week.


As you probably all know by now, I have a completely irrational fear of cats, which I believe is a condition called Ailurophobia .

Just the sight of a cat picture or cat fur, can send me into mushy, frozen heap, unable to move or sometimes even to breathe and that’s without even coming across the real thing!

This cover I found pretty disturbing, but not half as much as the terrifying synopsis, or the (for me) horrendous and cringeworthy, blow by blow review of the book by Nikki, over at ‘Notes Of Life’.

The thought of actually touching all that cat fur and making something with it that would mean it would become a permanent reminder of the cat is horrifying, although obviously the author and several of you out there in ‘blogland’ who left comments on Nikki’s site, can see something esoteric in the whole process and concept……




“Are your favorite sweaters covered with cat hair?

Are there fur balls piled up in every corner of your home?

And do you love to make quirky and one-of-a-kind crafting projects?

If so, it’s time to throw away your lint roller and curl up with your kitty! “Crafting with Cat Hair” shows readers how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts.

From kitty tote bags and finger puppets to fluffy cat toys, picture frames, and more, these projects are cat-friendly, eco-friendly, and require no special equipment or training.

You can make most of these projects in under an hour-with a little help, of course, from your feline friends! “


Off to rest in a darkened room after writing this post, have a great weekend everyone!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
