Curation by Cee is a series where I have carefully selected books that fit a specific theme, in order to set up tables and endcap displays for readers to peruse. This is something thing I already do at work, and find a lot of joy curating books that I want readers to pick up.
These are the books on my bookstore’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI) display this year:

During the last week of February 2018, I pondered about what type of post to make for “Books in Hand.” At first, I planned to discuss all the books customers came in asking for or buying, but that’s a bit too much because everybody came in asking for different books, and I didn’t remember all of them. My boss showed me a way to check our store’s best selling books, and I found out what we sold a lot of!

And that’s what this post is—seeing the top selling books of April 2022!

April 29, 2022 • Cee • Holy Mother Cover

holymothercover

Inspired by What She ReadsPure Imagination Blog, and Stacked.

I admit I’m a book cover snob. Who isn’t though?

Book covers are the first thing that attracts readers to a book. A good cover can draw someone is, just as a bad cover can easily draw someone away. It can essentially make or break a book. Holy, Mother Cover! is where I showcase the book covers that stand out (or make me cringe), and discuss cover changes.

(A big special thanks to Georgie at What She Reads for bestowing me this fabulous name and to Charlotte at The Simple Tales for creating the beautiful feature banner you see before you.)

If I set up a podcast themed display, I would put the following books…
  • Books based on Podcasts:

This graphic novel—The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins—covers the first six episodes of the Balance arc of the podcast The Adventure Zone (created by the McElroy brothers and their dad as they play a tabletop role playing game loosely based on Dungeons & Dragons).

You get to join “Taako the elf wizard, Merle the dwarf cleric, and Magnus the human warrior for an adventure they are poorly equipped to handle AT BEST, guided (“guided”) by their snarky DM, in a graphic novel that, like the smash-hit podcast it’s based on, will tickle your funny bone, tug your heartstrings, and probably pants you if you give it half a chance.” 1

Look at what we have here…

When was the last time I made this type of post? It must’ve been four years ago aka a very long time ago, but I’m ready to bring it back!

For those who do not know, Too Much TBR is a way to help me see which books I really need to read and tackle them. Is it effective? Perhaps. It helps a lot seeing a visual of the books on my TBR pile.

Let’s get down to it.
