Shhh, reading…

Since I am still not feeling well, so I thought I would share something cool from another blog.  I saw this posted on the Changing Hands Facebook page.

According to the Words on Paper blog it all started with this tweet…

In the conversation that followed the original tweet Sarah EnniTracey Neithercott, and Erin Bowman came up with a great idea.  (Click the names for links to their blogs.)

These awesome book covers…

The covers are made to fit the traditionally-sized YA book.  You can download PDF’s of the various designs. Printing instructions say take the PDFs to your local FedEx or Staples and get them printed on tabloid paper (11x17in). Matte cardstock is recommended rather than glossy so that the Go Away message is easily read.  A 60-80lb paper is perfect, lighter paper will make the page too thin and heavier will make folding bulky.

 I love the colors all together, so very pretty.  I get overly excited about things being uniform like this.  I get annoyed when a book series changes the book cover design mid series.  This makes me think I can fix that problem.
