Neat blog and a meme

November 16, 2007

[psych+copy.jpg]Have you checked out this interesting blog? Written by Becca, a graphic designer and book lover, Rekya’s Bookshelf is a blog all about book cover designs. I have always had an interest in book design (you can find a post I wrote about book covers a while back here) and I really like how she can describe a book cover so vividly. When writing about Psychogeography: Disentangling the Modern Conundrum of Psyche and Place, Becca says “This cover utilizes a style of typography that will catch my eye without fail. There’s something about the textured look, the disparate letters that makes me feel like I’m viewing something that hasn’t yet been spoiled by slick commercialization.” She is even having a bit of fun every Friday by hosting a little cover reconstruction. Stop by and check her out.

Lisa and Kristina both tagged me on the page 161 meme recently. Lisa’s meme says to go to page 161 of the book you are currently reading and read the sixth sentence. Kristina’s meme says to read the fifth sentence. I guess I’ll have to do both!

 Page 161 of Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides

Didn’t want to touch the lady’s hand! And in those guilt-ridden days, her mind crammed with Fard’s theories, my grandmother started to see his point.

Speaking of Middlesex, I just have fifty more pages to read, so my review should be posted right after my book club meeting mid-next week. I know, it seems like I have been reading this same book forever, but will soon be finished and am anxious to start something new.

    thanks for playing along!

    I am so excited that you are reading Middlesex. It is on my list of to-read and will probably get to it sometime in December.

    Thank you! You are great! And I really hope you participate in the cover redesign project. I’d love to see your work.
