You can definitely decide to read a book...by it's cover. :) Especially in this day and age, especially when choosing between YA books. I swear, YA probably has the best cover designers in the bookstore (because teens are visually oriented, I suppose). There's just so much...color. These people are brill. Especially when they start creating those covers that only make sense after you've looked at it about a dozen times, like this one. (Think it's two blobs of goo coming from the left and right and meeting in the middle? Think again. It's okay. I thought that's what it was for, oh, two months.)
But then something awful happens. Publishers publish the same book...with a different cover. And you have to choose. And, um, it's a horrible choice to have to make.
What on earth do you do when this happens? How do you cope? How do you choose? Or do you care? Does anyone else share my cover obsession?
