What’s Love Got to Do With It?

Submitter: Unflattering Cover photo, Check! Out of date information, Check! Must be a celebrity bio book from the 1980’s. They all seem to be like this. There is a chapter on Ike. A bit of a gloss over on their domestic relationship. Maybe that’s all you need, and is appropriate for a kids book? Considering all of her achievements since 1986, this seems like an easy weed. However there are still two copies at my local library. Great singer, out of date book.

Holly: Of all the stock footage of Tina Turner, this is the picture they used for the cover of the book? It looks like an <ahem!> “adult” doll. Show The Queen of Rock some respect! You can put this Private Dancer in your private collection and get it out of the library’s. It’s old. Weed and update. (And move the replacement to the adult collection. Kids aren’t interested.)

  1. It always gives me an extra thrill of horror when I see an awful book that has a review from Booklist or one of the other professional magazines on the cover.
