Cover Characteristic – Playing Cards


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. Sugar 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 we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit). You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

    Aces Up is a cute cover, and I like Cheating at Solitaire too. 🙂 Plus it’s a great title. Wonderland isn’t bad.

    • Sugar & Snark

      Glad you like them too!

  • Aces Up is really cute! And like Greg, I also like Wonderland and Cheating at Solitaire.
