So I stopped by my local indie bookstore today, to see if I could pick up a copy of The Woman Who Rides Like A Man for cheap - it’s my least favorite of the Alanna books, but it’s the only one I don’t own, and the completist in me gets ridiculously put out at the thought of rereading only three books of the series.

AND THIS IS THE COVER.  I JUST, I DON’T, WHAT.  I honestly cannot express my dismay that somebody, somewhere, thought it was appropriate to use this picture - this shitty, ugly picture - as a cover for a book about a girl who kicks ass and takes names.
