I thought I’d present another shimmery book cover for today’s Daily Bookshot because I’d forgotten just how shimmery my 1994 Penguin edition of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff really was.
How did I remember? Well I was watching Sunday’s Hay-on-Sky broadcast on Sky Arts 1 (this one HERE) and Markus Zusak (author of The Book Thief) picked it out as one of his favourite summer reads. While he was talking about it, he was holding it, and under the studio lights it glimmered and shone like the blade of a Samurai sword. That’s when I remembered that I own the same ‘shiny book’.
