THE YOU I NEVER KNEW is THE BOOK YOU WANT TO READ

Something old is new again. Authors love reissues, because it gives us a chance to offer our books to an expanding readership. I suspect some readers might have other opinions. Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about The You I Never Knew, a March release from Grand Central. It’s got a fresh new look and comes with a bonus reading group guide, and a $7.99 cover price, so what’s not to like?
Here is something else I like about the new edition–the nice cover art that reminds me of Just Breathe:

And also, I think the cover model has good taste in sundresses:

See what I mean?

I bought mine at anthropologie from whence all good things come:

For book geeks only:
Here is a false start of a cover for the original edition of this book. It was never used. Simply not the right look.

What are your feelings about reissued books? Do they make you bitter with rage because you got hoodwinked into buying a book you’ve already read, or are they an opportunity for new readers to catch up on an author’s work?

  1. wow this book looks amazing! the title and the cover are beautiful! I have to add this book to my “to read list”!
    and I think that reissued books expose us to things we wouldn’t read otherwise, so it’s definitely a positive thing.
