I get most of my reading choices through recommendations, and once I love an author I'll keep hunting them down. But when I'm just shopping randomly, it's the cover that sucks me in. I know it immediately, when I see a cover that speaks to me. That begs me to pick it up. And then I just cross my fingers that the jacket copy lives up to it. And then I hold my breath that the book lives up to that!! LOL.
That's alot of pressure for a cover. And that's why the art departments at pub houses are so important.
So tell me...what draws you in?
I've put a few covers below. Based on just that, which ones speak to you, make you really want to pick it up?
What are your thoughts??
