Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  5. Gorgeous covers. My favorite from your list is I Ain't Gonna Paint No More. And I can't believe how timely it is to see that Martin Luthur book as my son is doing a book report on him, and I was trying to find a biography that's also a children's books. Just put in my request at the library - so thanks :-)

  11. What an enchanting selection of covers. So vibrant and colorful. Though I think my favorite is The Arrival. I tend to like the sepia-tone and the image is quite intriguing.
