Apologies for the delay, my mind has been elsewhere.

Anyway, here is an eclectic batch of book covers from the new lot I downloaded today. I have actually read so of these so I can recommend them. As for the rest, the standard rules apply: I cannot guarantee a good read, only that I liked the cover artwork.

Colour personality

15 10 2010

Based on your choices, you seem to lean toward the traits associated with an affinity for the color red. Your friends likely describe you as warm, passionate, and dynamic. You tend to feel emotions strongly and often wear your heart on your sleeve.A very social person, you are popular for your energy and readiness to have a good time. You’re one person who’s always ready to party! When it comes to relationships, work, and even how you decorate your home, you can be pretty traditional, but you’re also willing to make bold moves to make a statement.Your strong opinions and competitive nature mean that you sometimes clash with others, but often your warmth and confidence save the day. If you want to introduce your signature color into your home’s décor, consider a rich red for a formal dining room or as an unexpected punch of color in an entryway.

Take the test here.
