Cover

We all know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover.

And yet...

We do. All the time. Sometimes it's literally judging a book by the cover art. Other times it's the more insidious judging a person by their weight or hairstyle or eyeglass frames.

The covers matter, obviously--offering us glimpses of what's inside, teasers. Or covering up what's inside, hiding reality from view.
But they're also the part of a book most easily lost. Can we say the same about our own covers?

I'm a total sucker for the girl-in-a-dress-red-and-gold cover

day 11 (not counting sundays!) of the Lent photo-a-day challenge.
