Go Ahead Judge a Book by it’s Cover

By Jim and Michelle

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.)
