    I agrre with Stewart on this and I know we have asked before for it to stop and it was laughed off. I think of this thread as a quick way to glance through and see what people are buying and the pictures are too big, take awhile to scroll through and I don't want all my images turned off. There are several threads on book covers were it would be more appropriate for someone to share covers they like, for example http://www.bookandreader.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9044&highlight=book+covers

    To quote Steffee, YAY!

    It's great! Verra (as you say, lol) weird though. Very Nabokovian, actually. Puzzling! :D

    Ooh yay! Have read more now, finished the first part, and wow! It's tremendously weird! Never thought I would need to reread anything other than our Nabokov's, but I will.

    "The New York Trilogy" is one of my favourite books. I must have read it three times. I think I'm starting to understand what it's about. :D Sounds like I'll like Nabokov too then...

    Oh, I'm glad it's not just me!

    But how could anyone not like Nabokov? That would be the true puzzle. :confused: ;)
