We all do it (even though we’ve been admonished not to). Standing there looking at shelf after shelf of books we automatically are drawn to the covers. More importantly publishers know we do and create some really gorgeous covers to tempt us. Here are just a few of our favorites. Oh and we want to know what your favorite covers are. Leave them in the comments. (Bonus points if you can guess which of us picked which cover.)
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. 1973 Ballantine Paperback cover. | Dreadful Skin by Cherie Priest. The paperback cover. | Night Watch by Terry Pratchett. The British hardcover. | Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch. Hardcover.
