Escapism of the bookish sort.
Who knew there were so many covers with port holes. I just read the Women in Cabin 10. It was pretty good.
I am so impressed by this. I struggle when I have to find a cover that is a particular cover, never mind that it features portholes. Well done! I have read exactly zero of these, but at least I have heard of a few.
You did such a great job with this post, Greg! Who would have ever thought I'd be into portholes? Lol The vintage covers are my faves :)
There is something satisfying about having a porthole on the cover of a book.
I say this every time but I really do love those old time covers, they are just so much fun.
Portholes are awesome! I know I've seen other porthole books out there, but I'd have to go searching. Very cool list!
I never realized this was a bit of a cover theme. I really liked The Woman in Cabin 10.-Laurenwww.shootingstarsmag.net
I thought you had done this before! But really there are SO many porthole covers that you could probably do a few posts with them. Karen @ For What It's Worth
it would be difficult for me to find some
Have you read Glow?? That book disturbed and angered me. Like, I seriously wanted to kill some people.Lindsi @ Do You Dog-ear?
Love all those old covers...especially The Land That Time Forgot!
Neat to see all those porthole covers. I just read a steampunk romance earlier this year that had a porthole on the cover. This reminds me that I still need to read Woman in Cabin 10.
I love anything to do with water, so portholes fits right in there!sherry @ fundinmental
It's definitely a unique view! Not so good when you see something you don't expect to, like that ginormous eye!
Oh I like this theme! It's interesting how many there are, and how many different ways they are used to express different ideas. I think Charlie Chan Carries On is really fun, but Glow certainly stands out.
I love those old school covers!
I love that cover for The Land That Time Forgot!
The Agatha Christie is so over the top sinister! I love it! I like the James Bond cover. I hadn't seen that one before and The Woman in Cabin 10 cover is amazing!
You keep reminding me that I never read the third Glow book. ☺
Who knew that there were so many? I'll be seeing potholes everywhere now! 😆
It's always super cool to see covers from old books. It would fun to find a bookstore that had an entire section dedicated to these. Hugs and Happy Wednesday! RO
I loved The Woman in Cabin 10, but I totally never caught that cover with portholes are kind of a thing. :)
I would never have thought there were so many covers with portholes on them. Haha! I will admit that the eye catching cover is one of the reasons I read The Woman in Cabin 10. Like the Christie cover also.
My fav is the woman on cabin 10! I am sucker for anything bluish and watery LOL
I didn't realise there were so many of them with portholes on the covers! I have actually not ready of them but I did just get Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie - my cover is just different.
