Cover Characteristics – Musical Instruments



This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. She kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!

Each week I (along with the S&S ladies) will post a characteristic and choose 5 of my favorite covers with that characteristic. I would love for you to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic so hop on down to the comments and tell me what you think.


Today’s Cover Characteristic – Music Instruments



And The Winner Is…

Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.


I am a pianist so this particular cover holds a special place in my heart. But…if I wasn’t (a pianist that is) I would still LOVE this cover. Why? Because the floating pianos look like “beautiful chaos” to me. Huh? Well…when you break it down music is just a bunch of chaotic randomness arranged in a beautiful way. This cover reflects that. So Player Piano…congrats on your big win!

About Misty

Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I'm sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I'm about 94% certain I have multiple personalities. I don't sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, especially when I'm stuck in traffic and I have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle. I am a vampire lovin', zombie obsessed, book-in-hand, iPod freak. You either love me or hate me. You be the judge.

    1. You know.. I never really took notice of it either until the girls at S&S made it their theme this week. The one I saw the most was guitars. Apparently rock stars make wonderful protagonist.
