Book Cover Meme

Thanks for all the well wishes, my daughter seem so be doing better today. I have, of course, contracted whatever she had. Hopefully it will only last for a few days. I’m feeling kinda out of it today, so I thought I’d try something different.

Cavan created an interesting Meme on his blog the other day, and I thought I’d join in. He called it A Book Meme and the rules are pretty simple. Here is a direct quote directly from his site:

Go to the advanced book search on Amazon, type your first name into the Title field, and post the most interesting/amusing cover that shows up.

Cavan claims there’s no way you’ll beat his book cover for weirdness. Sounds like a challenge to me.

Here’s the cover I found:


What this cover lacks in weirdness, I think it makes up in authority. I mean this is a book about Paul dangit! It’s about me. OK, maybe it’s not about me, but it’s about an Apostle, and that should count for something. Also, I’m pretty sure Paul could take that cowboy on the cover of Cavan’s book. And if he couldn’t, I hear Paul hung out with a pretty tough gang of dudes.

Anyhow, give it a try and let me know what you come up with. Can you beat Cavan and I?

Plus, this is probably as close as I’ll ever be to having my name on the cover of a book.

  1. Rob – At first I couldn’t tell you had a link there. Upon seeing your cover, though, I bow down before your greatness. You can’t beat a poorly drawn penguin. Also, I’m going to edit your comment so everyone sees the link.

  2. Oh my God! This is such fun! I was torn. Should I choose the novel ‘Diane of the Green Van'(better than a white van I suppose? Or the epic ‘Diane and the School Fete’?
    The cover photograph on this one swung it for me. Is this for real? I am almost tempted to buy the book just to see. And no, let me NOT grow up to be an airborne ranger!
    Rosebud Diane

    Hope this link works. The book is called ‘Rosebud Diane’ by John E McDonald. There are two covers. It’s obvious I think which one I chose!
