10. Go Away, I’m Reading! Dust Jackets
These colorful dust jackets made their online debut a year ago. Designed by Erin Bowman, Tracey Neithercott, and Sarah Enni, these tell people (politely) to not interrupt people absorbed in books.
The best part of this is that the templates are FREE. The index for all 14 jackets (some themed to specific books) is at Erin Bowman’s site.
Just remember though, the very best thing to give reader-writers is some peace and quiet time.
- Donald Trump is the last Republican standing. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has ended his presidential run 🇺🇸
