Cover Characteristic: Telephones

October 24, 2015 Uncategorized 16

The Cover Characteristic meme is hosted at  Sugar and Snark.   Here are the guidelines:

Each
week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers
with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5
favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make
a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in
Linky (so we can visit).

You
don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be
great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

This was another week when I didn’t find as many as I thought I would.  But I did come up with 5, although #5 isn’t necessarily a phone.  

5.

I figure it can count because I’m sure it was hooked up to a phone.  Although some younger people out there may not recognize this as an answering machine.

Another old fashioned phone, even older than the answering machine from #5!  And I just love pulling out all these old books!

1.  And I guess my favorite, more for what it says on the phone than because of the actual phone.

I have to have this page a day calendar every year.  And I can’t read too far into this book or into any pages with these because I will get to laughing so hard that I lose my breath, start coughing, and have tears running down my face.

Those are my covers, can you think of any others?

    Good picks! I saw the Sweet Valley high one too when I was searching… and yes, phones with cords! Doesn't seem so long ago… Autocorrect is funny too!

      Oooh, I didn't read any of those, but you're right from what I've seen of the covers. I thought I'd find a Nancy Drew one, but didn't. Thanks for stopping by!
