… because the book itself certainly isn’t! ARGH.
A while ago, I read The Hunger Games, and it was so exciting that I couldn’t put it down. I ordered the next two books (all of the bookstores near my house closed down [WAH], and sometimes it takes me two weeks to find time to get to next nearest one, so now it’s actually faster for me to order books. boo.) and I got the hard cover versions because they were cheaper than the paperbacks I could find. I don’t like reading hardcovers with paper covers because I get all worried about keeping them nice, but they flop around all annoying and fragile-like, and it all just stresses me out and gets on my nerves.
So for fun (and to justify my latest oop Japanese craft book purchase), I made myself a book cover, and it makes me happy whenever I see it! Yay!
BUT. I’m reading Catching Fire now, and it is driving. me. crazy. It’s taking me forever to read because I keep shutting it in disgust. Disgust, I say!
Edit: Like most of my projects, I made this totally on impulse (procrastinating on something else I was supposed to do), and so it’s made from my stash. 🙂
