It’s always good to encounter a project or idea that makes you think twice or look again.

Coverflip did just that.

This idea that there are “girl books” and “boy books” and “chick lit” and “whatever is the guy equivalent of chick lit”* gives credit to absolutely no one, especially not the boys who will happily read stories by women, about women. As a lover of books and someone who supports readers and writers of both sexes, I would love a world in which books are freed from some of these constraints.

What a great lesson in detecting how much we do judge a book by the cover and how that impacts our view of the story before we even open one page.
