Friday Face Off: Historic

Yes, I know it is Monday! I took the long weekend off for 4th of July so I missed doing this one! (because I am almost never on top of things enough to get it scheduled beforehand!)

Friday Face Off is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, and run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

“The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe… has been answered.”

This weeks theme:  A cover featuring something/somebody historic.

This is a tough one only because I have so many too chose from.  I have narrowed it down to books about, Frederick Douglass, Mary Jemison, Anne Frank, The Dust Bowl, or WWII.

My Choice: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass

There are 1,439 Edition of this on Goodreads, so I am going to do the first bunch and then skim the rest for covers I like.

Least Favorites:


One of the things I liked in general of all the covers is that they all show Frederick Douglass at different ages.
