on beauty

Speaking of pretty book covers, I have fallen in love with this gorgeous cover of Zadie Smith's On Beauty. I'd never heard of it before Sami recommended it to me, but I love it for the cover alone. I don't care if I end up liking it or not!

And the best part? It was absolutely free through the coolest website ever, PaperBackSwap. (A huge thanks to Laura for telling me about it!)
