Showcase Sunday is a red carpet event (or weekly meme) hosted my Jordan’s Jewels where only the prettiest book covers dare to show their faces, strutting their stuff for the line of paparazzi ready to critique their fashion risks. –learn more here.
Hmmm, so, like, what is “Showcase Sunday”?
It’s no secret that a beautifully designed book cover has the power to jedi-mind trick you into spending your hard earned cash without ever looking at the words behind the cover.
Don’t deny it. We’re all bookworms and we all know we have a problem.
This series, or meme, is a red carpet event where only the prettiest book covers dare to show their faces, strutting their stuff in front of a panel (okay, just me but have some imagination) of experienced judges (imagination, remember?) who critique everything from their ability to pull off elegantly wrap-around foiled covers to baring all for the cameras without their (dust) jackets.
FAQ (that for some reason people want to know.)
Where did you get the nerve to critique book covers?
I am a crafter. I love scrapbooking, card making, any type of paper craft really and, while I would hardly call myself an artist, I have always had an appriciation for someone who can stare at a blank canvas and create something from nothing.
One day, while in my room, I was trying to think of something new and different to add to my blog and, while showcasing book covers is a popular trend in book blogging, I still liked the idea, and
Showcase Saturday Showcase Sunday was born.
So, do you, like, sit in a room and think of silly memes all day?
Actually, yes… kind of. When I feel myself getting bored with my blog I try to spruce it up with different types of posts, tags, wrap-ups, etc. and, while most of them never seem to stick, this one did.
Why “Showcase Sunday” and not “Showcase Thursday”?
Showcase Sunday used to be Showcase Saturday but I have more time to write and publish detailed posts on Sundays… well, I used to. Now I’m kind of stuck with it!
You used to have so many Showcase Sundays! What happened to them?!
I deleted most of them. For awhile I was simply pasting a book cover and a synopsis and, while it helped me keep my blog updated with new content, it wasn’t a very appealing post format.
Now I post book covers, the synopsis of said book, and my thoughts on the cover.
So, maybe I might join you. That would be cool, right?
Duh! You can grab the snazzy button below and even copy and paste the cute (well, I think it’s cute) description written below.
I do ask that you link back to me, out of curtesy!
A Complementary Blurb
Okay, so maybe “complementary” isn’t the right word (maybe it is but I always associate the word “complementary” with mints on pillows… although no hotel I have gone to has taken it upon itself to give free candy… to a stranger… in bed… okay, now I see why.)
But, this is a small paragraph you are welcome to use if you choose! (I rthymed! I still don’t have a mint.)
Please, as mentioned previously, link back to me!
