How to Be Spotted by CoverSpy:
We occasionally have cool readers tell us they’re going to set out to be spotted by a CoverSpy Agent. If that’s you, we’ve put together some handy tips:
The important first step: leave your home! We are not in your living room; that would be creepy. We are on planes, trains, and buses; in dog parks,bars, and of course, bookish places.
Hold that book up proud! Just think of it as augmenting your brain exercise with a bit of arm exercise.
If you’re reading a hardcover, keep the dust jacket on! Unless you’re reading The Circle, the jacket is much easier to ID than the case.
Read in print. Unless you are sitting next to me reading one of the most famous scenes in British literature, I will probably be stumped by your e-reader.
Choose books with distinctive chapter titles! Most books have a chapter 5, very few have a chapter “Thank You, Jesus.”
If none of these appeal, find someone to read your book aloud. Or sing it to yourself! (Note: Your Metro companions may not be charmed unless you’re a small child. We take no responsibility for the glares of less whimsical passengers.)
Happy reading!
