i can and do judge books by their covers

I scan the shelves at used bookstores and I spot the gold among the trash based purely on the cover. Because while it’s not true that all good books have good covers, it seems to be true that good books don’t have that cover.

Or maybe it’s just that all my favorite books were written last century (or the one before) and so they stand out for that reason.
