It's a cover up!
Don't judge a book by its cover and all that... I know but how often are you attracted to a book just because something about the cover is really pretty/ugly/different/cool? I know that I often pick up a book just because I'm drawn in by the cover. So here are a few of my favourite covers:
Marisha Pessl: "Special Topics in Calamity Physics"
Margaret Atwood: "The Blind Assassin"
Evelyn Waugh: "Black Mischief"
Chuck Palahniuk: "Snuff"
F. Scott Fitzgerald: "Tales of the Jazz Age"
Which covers are your favourites?
