Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

In celebration of the greenest day of the year, here’s a selection of some green book covers that AREN’T about environmentalism! You’d be surprised how hard these were to find. Maybe it’s because common publishing wisdom states that people don’t buy books with green covers. (We’re not making that up.) Apparently, Shel Silverstein, Dr. Seuss, and L. Frank Baum beg to differ…

Have a safe and happy holiday!
