You may have noticed our new book area to the left when you walk into the Library. We make a special effort to display book covers so that you can see them because, despite the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover,” that’s the first thing many of us notice about a book. And it may be the very thing that entices you to pick it up, check it out, and read it. Sara posted last week about similar-looking romance novel covers, and Kate has posted about other cover similarities before. When I was walking by the new books earlier, one particular cover caught my eye, and it made me think of another very similar cover, so I thought it would be fun to post about more covers today.
First up, the one that I saw today. We’ve got black silhouettes facing the same way and white text on almost exactly the same shade of blue background.
Next, (and thanks to Kate for this one), for some reason, dried flowers laying on books (maybe wood?) take center stage on two book covers that seem to be about a mistress of some sort. Odd.
Backs! Naked female backs with similar coloring. (Thanks to Kate here, too!)
Have you seen book covers that look remarkably similar? Please share titles with us, and maybe your suggestions will be featured in a future “Book Alikes” post.
