Can you judge a book by it's cover?

It's often been said that you can't judge a book by it's cover, yet the cover is the first thing that any prospective reader sees and on the basis of that initial impression the first decision is made, to sample or not to sample. Of course, even a sample of a book won't always tell you if the book is any good throughout, though it's usually a pretty good guide. It's a certainty, though, that a dull cover won't even tempt the casual observer to do more than simply move onto the next book on the shelf. So, with this thought in mind, Barnaby has decided that his knees have been on show long enough.

Today, he has uploaded new cover images for his short story series, 'Barnaby's Shorts'. The stories inside are untouched and as good as ever. So, dear reader, it's up to you. If you are tempted by any of the new covers, why not take a peep inside.

It's possible to sample every book by visiting and clicking on any title that interests you. You'll find ten stories inside each volume in a wide variety of genres, just the right length to read in your coffee break, in the bath, in bed, on the beach or on the train ride to work. The only difficult choice is which volume to pick up first. (Tip:  You don't have to start at volume one!).
