Backward books

I have noticed this trend, have you?

Or this trend?  



I suppose we can assume all of Kevin Sharkey’s books are on decorating, but seriously? Sorted by color? It defies my sense of order…they really do look out-of-order to me! Unless of course publishers have started publishing in Dewey decimal color order. Have they?

What about the book covering trend? Have you seen this one?

I love books. I appreciate books displayed as books, not as decorative statements. I guess I’d rather see someone buy and display their books the old-fashioned way, but most importantly, I think people should read books.
