Judging a Book by its Cover

We always say: Don't judge a book by its cover; but sometimes it's fun to do just that!

I've been trying colour displays at my branch for the last while and it turns out that people are really drawn to them.

I started with purple and yellow books alternating; it was quite eye catching as you can see in the photo. Then, because it was near Canada Day, I tried red and white. I have since put out orange for October and white for December.

Of course, I'm not saying this is the best way to pick a book, but it may draw you to something you never thought you might read. You may discover a new author or genre that you really enjoy.
