#retrocovers? It's time to pull some Nancy Drew! (Even though some of these earlier editions are problematic) I credit this strawberry blonde sleuth with my love of reading! #riotgrams

Rachbb3 These are great. 5y
EllieDottie @Rachbb3 I know right! I hope to collect at least most of them! 5y

A few #retrocovers off my shelf.
Blonds, redheads, oops - no brunettes (except for the dead one on the first cover) 😯

Lisa and Lottie | Erich Kstner

I don't have a lot of #retrocovers that you haven't already seen for today's #riotgrams, but here's my Lottie and Lisa (which you could just see the spine of in yesterday's picture). I've loved this book since primary school and adore the Hayley Mills film. Even though splitting up twins is terrible parenting, it's a brilliant story.

BookishBeth I had that book when I was in the fourth grade. I loved that book! The cover was so different. Mine had a very 80's vibe. 5y
Verity @BookishBeth the copy I read at school was brown and yellow! I'm glad mine is a bit nicer! 5y

I love old-school, Sci-fi covers. Their corniness is enduring in a way that modern covers rarely are. 😂 #riotgrams #retrocovers

elkeOriginal This is Amazing 😻😻 5y

Day 27 #riotgrams #retrocovers. My Trixie Belden collection -what's left of it- are my only books with retro covers. The publication dates of these range from 1948-1971. #girldetective

Here are a few retro covers most of them books I've owned for a while. One (Mrs Harris) was published in 2010 but with a retro-esque cover

Neverwhere | Neil Gaiman
post image

Also, can we talk about these #retrocovers of Neil Gaiman's books?? Neverwhere is my favorite book so I have multiple copies of it (audiobook, audioplay, paperback, ebook, hardback) so I just had to get the one with the new cover. I would love to have it in another language! I just love this book!

Nebklvr Possible sequel this year!!! 6y
bookdrunkard78 @Nebklvr Omg I know!! I can't stand the wait! So excited! Plus, American Gods starts 4/30. So many good things for Gaiman fans!! 6y
Nebklvr @bookdrunkard78 i haven't read American Gods yet 6y
bookdrunkard78 @Nebklvr I plan on re-reading it before the show starts and that also makes it a fit for the #readharderchallenge ! 6y
