I love book covers. I really really do. Even my students know how much I love them. I'll share a new book and go on and on about the cover. Or I'll search out a few students in the morning to show it to them. They laugh at me but they get it. They also get that a "bad" cover is - well just bad!
Currently I'm crushing on:

When I first saw this cover way back and bloggers started buzzing about, I thought it was kind of boring. But then I got a post card of it in with the ARC of Delirium I got (with a super bad cover). All of a sudden I saw it - the face! How did I miss that before? Did the early versions not have it??? Now I can't stop looking at it. And the first time I saw it in person - WOW! It just holds my attention. If you ever see a woman in the bookstore just holding up this book and staring at it - that would be me! I have a copy of the ARC - without the cover - and I really really think I'm going to have to buy the book just to get this pretty pretty cover.
Do you do that? Do you buy a book you already own just because you like the new cover better??
Oh and look at the French cover!
