…a road
Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates

So, this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be... There's a surprising lack of high heels on my shelves (those were the best I could find), I had almost given up on the sunglasses when I found that cover of an amazon freebie I downloaded months ago, and I kind of cheated on the combat boots. Although, when you think of it, the three musketeers are wearing boots and they fight a lot...

I used mainly printed books except for the sword, wedding dress, Christmas tree and sunglasses categories, all presently on my kindle. If you want to check whether or not I own them, you can use this link to my goodreads shelves.

  1. Great covers! I had a bit of trouble with a few--I wound up going with alternate covers for books I owned in some cases. Here's my post: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2013/08/bout-of-books-progress-update-3.html
