They say you shouldn't judge the book by its cover. But when perusing books at the library or at the bookstore, it can be easy to pick one out based on that criteria.

Writer Dina Del Bucchia believes no one should feel guilty about choosing books that way. 

Dina's argument is that books themselves are stylish, so she goes one step beyond choosing a book based on the cover: she draws inspiration from covers for outfits.

Dina talks to Candy about her social media campaign, "Dress Like a Book."
