If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?

If the book were The Fountainhead I would.  That supermuscular man holding the light (of ideas?) for the world is awesome.  He holds in his hand ingenuity and hard work and intelligence.  His body holds health and power.  Wow.

If he book were The Bible maybe not.  There you have to go inside the book and stay there a while, a long while to start to ingest and digest the ideas therein.

If the book were I Never Promised Your a Rose Garden, I might.  My ancient edition showed “Deborah” in what looked like tribal gear in the midst of one of her fantasies.  You just have to go inside and see what goes on.
