The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human

This just in! I can’t wait to get a look at it. My inner writer grabbed this book right out of the box.

    This is exactly the kind of book that gets my attention: the title, the cover, the promise of new revelations. A customer was in the story yesterday (3/20) saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover” but we do it all the time. And I’m most guilty of such a “crime.” If the cover doesn’t appeal to me I’m less likely to read the book. Now, of course, there are exceptions to every rule. If I’m reading a philosophy book I don’t have that same expectation. But a novel, now I want a novel to speak to me from the very beginning. So, Cover, show your stuff! Come on, publisher, use me as part of your focus group. I know what I like, and I know what a lot of others like. And yes, that means, we’re judging your book by its cover.
