Cover Wonderment: Going Vintage

I am in cover love and wonder! Sure it's inaccurate (we collect vintage vinyl and radios so I know that radio does not play 45's and I am pretty sure it doesn't take head phones either) BUT still isn't it presh? I love the vintage beauty parlor dryer chairs and pink carpet! Plus how can you not love a story about a girl (who after finding her boyfriend cheating online) swears off technology and goes 1962?!

SO glad I spotted this one this morning at Tina's Book Reviews.

Click here or on the image to learn more about Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt. It's due out Spring 2013.

Do you collect vintage vinyl or radios?

  2. That cover is so much fun. I used to have a little kiddie record player that I would listen to my books on. I haven't seen that thing in so long and I've been wanting to get one for old time's sake.

  4. That is a great cover! I do collect vintage vinyl, my kids are fascinated with the record player. We have some old Simon & Garfunkel and some big band records that are fun to listen to.

      We don't have cable and I could do without phones and tvs but the lack of internet and audiobooks would be soooo hard.

    1. SO there with you doll! The only thing I don't totally love is old movies. I like some but some tend to be too old for me. Everything else I LOVE. I actually prefer buying old things to new things.

  35. Seriously in love with that cover! I love the colors too! I've only read Lindsey's Princess for Hire series, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's more for a younger YA audience, but you may want to check it out for future reading by Baby Whimsy. ;o)
    Fabulous find!!!

  36. I love vintage anything/everything, especially vintage vinyl. I saw an old 1930s vintage radio once...the kind in a cabinet...and Mr. Reader had to physically restrain me from buying it. He was right, we had no place to put it, but somewhere in my alternate life universe, we own it and everyone thinks I am super cool for having it. :)

    1. Me too! *high five*

      I think you're super cool because you had to be physically pulled away from it. :)

      Vintage radios and record players is a shared weakness for Mr. Whimsy and I. We have several and dream of owning a phonograph.

  45. I love vintage and retro. This cover looks so fun - - and I love the concept.
    My mom used to be a stylist (or a beautician, as they were known then) and the dryers with the green seats remind me so much of when I would go to work with her. He he!
