..but it's often the cover that makes you pick it up in the first place.
I loved the picture on the cover of Tisson's Consolations of the Forest and after glancing at a few pages (and enjoying the feel of the soft finish of the cover paper) I decided I wanted to read it.
Tesson is a writer, traveller, journalist, and something of a philosopher....the list of books he took with him to his forest cabin in Siberia makes interesting reading on it's own. It's a book to read in short bursts and I'm enjoying it thoroughly, as I look out at a slight flurry of snowflakes and the temperature hovers around zero...
There is a 5 minute video here, and a one hour film, in French, here, about Tesson's sojourn, if like me, you are a bit of an armchair adventurer..
Do you have books you like to read in rough weather?
Do you have rough weather?
And do you sometimes choose a book by its cover?
