EadieB @Librarybelle I have more but it‘s getting old! 2mo

EadieB @8little_paws Thanks! But the cover is strange! 2mo
julesG The top right cover is pretty expressive. Not. 😀 Thanks for finding all those 🙈🙈🙈 covers. 2mo
EadieB @julesG Glad you enjoyed them! Yes that is a pretty unique cover! (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 You‘ve been a great researcher of these covers. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Here‘s my secret: Just google ‘ugly covers‘ - very easy! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s how I did some of the covers too. What would we do without Google! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB & @Andrew65 Just wondering if you guys are having my problem—Google won‘t let me have large images any longer—not sure what gives. Anyway, I‘m so blind that I can‘t really see them now. Why did they do that? If anyone knows, I‘d love to know if you can do anything about it. Meanwhile, great post, Eadie...sorry it‘s your last one...I‘ve really enjoyed these! 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I just take pictures of any image I want and then use photo collage or pic collage to make my pictures to post. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB @gradcat I tend to use photo collage. I save the image then insert into photo collage. (edited) 2mo
gradcat Okay, I use photo collage as well. So you guys are not taking screenshots, but are instead saving them only? I didn‘t know that would work... thanks for any help you can give me—I‘ll take it! ♥️👍 @EadieB & @Andrew65 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I do take screenshots and they are stored in my photos then I use them in photo collage or pic collage. 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Will occasionally take screen shots, but usually on my iPad press on a book cover, gives me a save image option (world for any pictures on an internet page) and then an option comes up to save image. I then load these images into photo collage. @EadieB 2mo
gradcat @EadieB & @Andrew65 Thank you both for the help...Andrew, you may think me an idiot, but I did not realize I could save images for posting like that. I believe that may help me a lot...I cannot believe I haven‘t realized that before now—doh (she slaps head)! Better late than never, right? 😂 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Definitely, and I only learnt it when I was trying to sort out my initial picture posts for Litsy. #BlameItOnLitsy (edited) 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Yes! Now maybe I can get back to posting! It seems something always trips me up—but usually, it‘s simply the lack of time! 😂 1mo
Andrew65 @gradcat Can relate to that recently! 1mo

Librarybelle The cover with the guy and the gun is the worst - the gun is the same size as his head! 😂 2mo
EadieB @Librarybelle That is funny! 2mo
EadieB @julesG You would wonder! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB One more doctor appointment very early in the morning, then I‘ll start! Thanks for continuing to include me! ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Hope you have a good visit with your doctor. 2mo
Andrew65 What does go through some publishers‘ Heads! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Some of these look like homemade covers - maybe low budget publishers. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB or gross drafts! 2mo
gradcat Thanks @EadieB ♥️ 2mo

@Andrew65 @julesG @gradcat @Librarybelle

Librarybelle I actually don‘t mind this one...maybe because the book has to do with monsters. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It‘s definitely not as bad as some others you found! 😂 2mo
EadieB @Librarybelle Running low on the very good ones now. This is just part of the strange ones. I don‘t like the way her one eye looks. 2mo
Librarybelle Yeah, the eye does look funny! 2mo
gradcat This one makes me laugh for some reason! 2mo
Andrew65 There‘s definitely something about the eye. 2mo

RachelAmphlett Woah, nasty - what was the publisher thinking?😱 2mo
julesG Ugh! 2mo
Andrew65 You‘re getting good at finding these! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Thanks! 2mo
Twainy I‘m cracking up! This is in my Audible wish list. To be fair that list is probably 30 pages long. This author has co-written a couple of fun horror books. I reviewed one here plus Draculas was good also. Blisters got 4.5 stars. It looks deliciously horrible! The cover alone!! ICK! Happy Halloween 😆 2mo
EadieB @Twainy I know! I read that it is a fun comedy! 2mo
gradcat Ooooohhhh, this one is très weird, if you ask me—so scary! 2mo

julesG Just giving this a pass makes me feel happier. Doesn't even take 9 seconds. 😜 2mo
Andrew65 What do these publishers think about! 😡 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Colors? I guess! 2mo
See All 40 Comments
gradcat That title annoys the hell out of me...don‘t get me started on the cover!! @Andrew65 Are you feeling any better? 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Yes it does take a little longer than 9 seconds to feel better. What has it been for @Andrew65 ? Something like 9 weeks! 2mo
gradcat I know! 9 seconds—as if! 😂 2mo
Librarybelle Yikes! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB @gradcat Now ongoing for 10 weeks or so. What do we know so far, no ulcer or anything sinister in stomach. There is inflammation in the stomach, and gastritis. No Gall stones present but doctor still has a theory that a gall stone has passed. Liver readings an issue, abnormal readings although seem to have peaked (possibly) and come down again bit still not yet in normal area. Had a blood test yesterday so hoping gone down again. 🤞 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB @gradcat Still getting stomach pains similar to gall stones. Doctor thinks could be the gastritis. Not been as bad this week, it seems to peak at weekends at the moment. Possibly because of tests, this weekend could be telling as no tests. (edited) 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I hope you get some answers soon as 10 weeks is too long to suffer with this problem. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I know, just don‘t see an end at the moment. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 So sorry because you are too nice of a person to have to be so uncomfortable for so long. Very frustrating! Hopefully the inflammation will die down soon! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thanks 😊I am hoping the liver readings may indicate improvements. 🤞 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 There should be some improvement if you stopped eating the foods that irritate your stomach. I guess when you get the final diagnosis then they will know what to do to help you. 2mo
dragondrool @Andrew65 Hope everything gets sorted out soon. 2mo
Andrew65 @dragondrool Thanks 😊 2mo
gradcat @Andrew65 Oh, Andrew, I‘m so sorry. I hope you‘re at least some bit better, because I know these tests & lack of diagnosis can be quite stressful. Take care of yourself and keep us posted...we‘re here for you, right @EadieB ? If you just want to vent, we‘re happy to listen. ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Of course, we are here to help in anyway we can. Went to the doctor's today and got antibiotics. I'm hoping my sinus infections will be better soon! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB Those should knock it out—antibiotics, I mean. Sorry it‘s dragging on so long...it seems to be lingering with you. Is it cold up there yet? Do you get more sinus problems when the seasons are changing? I have more migraines when the air pressure drops! Hope those pills get rid of your issues pronto! ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Not cold yet! Still very warm and rainy! Chilly in the morning but heats up by afternoon. 2mo
gradcat Still hot here. I wish the weather would break—it‘s disgusting here by the end of the summer—everything smells bad from all the heat & humidity—ugh! 2mo
Andrew65 @gradcat @eadieb Thanks to both of you. 😊 Hope it helps the sinuses Eadie, and quickly, sinus pain is awful. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Bad sinus headache this morning but trying to ignore it and keep reading! Hope you‘re doing better today! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB & @Andrew65 Hope you both are feeling a bit better! ♥️♥️♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Sitting up is helping my sinuses to drain! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB @gradcat If that isn‘t bad enough, now got a heavy cold and cough. 😡 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Just what you need at this time! Does it ever stop? Any word from the doctor with your blood test? 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB No, not yet. 2mo
gradcat Oh, gosh, you two...Andrew, I‘m so sorry you haven‘t had an answer yet, and Eadie, have the antibiotics helped at all? Hang in there! @Andrew65 & @EadieB ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I think they are helping but I woke up today with the worse sinus headache I've ever had. After drinking my hot tea, it's starting to feel somewhat better. I just need to get through tomorrow's babysitting day then we are going to beach house for a few days. Hope you are feeling better too! (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 Ouch! Babysitting with sinus issues, can‘t think of anything worse. Not very evident over weekend as had a bad weekend. 16 hours for the Readathon was way below what I‘d normally achieve! @gradcat @EadieB 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes 16 hours is still good but normally you would have done better but you do have a good reason for your decline in hours. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB True but as you know I like to succeed! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 There is no other word than succeed in our vocabulary! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Very surprised to see I have read over 200 pages more this September than last September. Currently on 7676 pages. A big surprise, and 2 more books than last year. Given everything very pleased with this. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 That is amazing! 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Thanks 😊 2mo
gradcat Ugh...maybe the beach air will help? 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Just might help! 2mo
gradcat Good! ♥️ 2mo

julesG @Andrew65 @Librarybelle @EadieB I seem to be running out of covers. That can't be. I'll go diving in the stacks later. 2mo
Librarybelle @julesG @Andrew65 @EadieB I know what you mean! I tend not to buy covers I find unattractive, and unless I see one sitting on the shelf in the library, nothing comes to mind. 2mo
EadieB @Librarybelle I don‘t own any of these ugly cover books, I just find them online. @julesG (edited) 2mo
Librarybelle Good sleuthing! 2mo
gradcat Okay—I‘m the odd guy out—I find this one to be kind of interesting. However, subject matter & paper clips? Not sure what they want to symbolize with them. 📎🖇📎🖇🔗🧷📎🖇📎🖇📎 2mo
EadieB @gradcat I know the book seems interesting but like you say, what‘s with the paperclips! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB I can‘t seem to catch a break...still trying to get better...it seems it two steps forward and one back, so I‘m not doing any ugly covers at the moment, but I‘m reading tagged as much as possible. ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Sorry to hear that! Actually, I‘ve been a little under the weather too! I try to ignore it as much as possible. My grandchildren were having snotty noses and I caught something. I‘ve had upset stomach, sore throat and cough. May have to get some antibiotic soon as coughing up some bad stuff. I get this all the time because of my immune system not working as it should. We are going to movies again to see downton abbey movie. Take care! 2mo
gradcat Ugh! I hope you get to feeling better soon. Catching things from kids seems to me to be particularly hard on us older folks. I have similar problems with my immune system—certain meds weaken it. I feel for you...hope you guys enjoy the movie!! ♥️ 2mo
EadieB @gradcat Thanks! We need to live in a bubble I guess! 2mo
gradcat @EadieB 😂 Unfortunately, I think you might be right. 2mo

Andrew65 Words fail me. 😱😳 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Very funny! 2mo
Librarybelle Not good at all! I‘m also taken aback by the choice of depiction on the cover - I read the synopsis, so I think I know why the individuals are depicted in this way, but the story could have been depicted so much better. 2mo
gradcat Omigod! This one looks like a freak show...weirdly frightening to me...they look Stepfordish to me. 😬 2mo

@gradcat

I'm posting twice today, I missed yesterday.

This is a case of "putting me off". Just because the author's name is printed much larger than the book's title. Tbh, I was confused at first about who is who, I actually thought the author's name was Jemima J. ?

Librarybelle Definitely! I prefer the other covers of this book I have seen. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks The title in smaller letters than the author's name is definitely a source of aggravation for me! 2mo
Andrew65 Just plain confusing, and a plain cover! 2mo
gradcat You know what? You‘re right! Especially considering there is an author out there whose MC is named Jemima whose covers look kind of similar...I actually read this book a while ago...I think my cover is different. Also, I couldn‘t really understand what all the fuss was about...not much substance, imho.... 2mo

I've had this book for a long time. I'm not tempted to actually use it. It has good content, but I think the cover is very bland.

EadieB @JulesG I agree! They could have used some brighter colors! 2mo
Librarybelle It is a bland cover! 2mo
Andrew65 Yawn! 2mo
gradcat Even the young woman on the cover seems a bit bored, if you ask me! 😂😂 2mo
