The Return of the Meme...

So let's get this prolonged book meme laid to rest shall we?

First, I have to admit, that I totally judge books by their cover. Not that I won't read/purchase a book that has a non-spectacular cover, but unless I'm already gunning for that particular title, I probably won't pick it up in order to get pulled in. The kind of covers I like aren't in any one particular style, but I do, in my own amateur way, appreciate tasty typesetting, font, photograph and placement...here's a couple of examples of covers I'm particularly taken with (all of which are sitting on my bookshelves)...
 
 
 
 
 
 Now wasn't that fun? Do you have an absolute favorite cover?
