book cover meme

23Nov07

I’m not usually a follower however, If I were to follow in some one’s footsteps Adam’s is a good man’s steps to go along with.

He posted a very funny book cover with his name in it. Guided by Winterwoman – here is his post.

The trick is to go into Amazon.com, head to the Advanced Search page and type in your name. Post a photo of the book with the most interesting cover. My name was tricky, very few of the books got the spelling correctly and thus, here is my result.

I chose this one simply because of the bird on the little kids head. The crux of the story is about a little boy (Lori was a common boys name in our historical past) attempting to go to Time’s Square. He eventually runs into a turtle who shows him around and it takes them about four months to get the job done. I guess the moral of the story is to slow down.

Meanwhile, the copyright date is 1963.

I had to bypass quite a few titles it seems my name, spelled correctly, is associated with a rather seedy underworld….

  1. Only one glance and I knew the bird boy was a Maurice Sendak and it’s a wonderful book. What a fun idea.

  2. You’ve proven once again why you are such a cool chick! I saw a book a while back in the book store that at first glance made me think it was about my great uncle but it was not only a similar name. Your article made me think about it.
