So I go into our bookstore at Granger Saturday night to grab Rob Bell's new book, Velvet Elvis. Sweet title BTW!
I'm looking all over expecting it to really stand out ... I finally give up after a minute or two and ask one of the bookstore workers. She walks over to the rack I'd walked by several times and picks it up. Well no wonder I missed it ... it's just a simple white cover with almost no writing and what writing there is is very small and subtle ... no pictures ... no graphics ... almost plain white.
Go look at the book picture on amazon. You can't even tell where the book stops the background begins.
I instantly though of Spinal Tap and the "Black" album :-) "none more blacker" ... that kills everytime :-)
Of course the bookstore person had no clue about Spinal Tap. Oh well, her loss.
Hmm, I have to wonder if Rob Bell is a Tap fan? I'm betting he is. Gotta go...must read.
