by its cover

I had a hard time falling asleep last night, it might have been the time change, and spent so much time browsing book covers on this site. Here are some of my favorites:

I must admit that if I had to randomly pick a book from a shelf, I'd choose one by its cover design. How about you? Do you have favorite book covers? I'm still dreaming of this set and might have to cave in and buy one after Easter.


  1. I like A General Theory of Love the best :)

  2. What a great site. Thanks for providing the link. I've always thought that the cover of "The Great Gatsby" is the best. But it's also my favorite novel so I'm biased.

  3. maya, i agree. there's something about those red chairs that pops right out of the page.

    des, glad you enjoyed the site. i haven't read 'the great gatsby', yet another one to add to my list.
