So bookcloseouts.com is a fantastic place to browse for covers because they have new books coming into their warehouse almost every hour. A browse through the new items will give you plenty of new ideas. And--oh my gosh!--look at this one! :
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
Besides for being an amazing book (one of my childhood favorites), I just love this new cover that HarperCollins has designed for their Essential Modern Classics series. It's colorful, mysterious, fun, and all in all just alluring. I know it definitely tempts me to buy another copy of The Phantom Tollbooth; how do you guys think it will attract new readers?
And how about this one??
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Again, part of HarperCollins' Essential Modern Classics series. I liked the related continuity of the the covers to the three books in this "series" (The Giver, Gathering Blue, and The Messenger) but I'm in awe of this cover. It gives the book a very sci-fi feel. Again, the colors are brilliant, the layout of the cover is fantastic... I'd pick this one up for sure.
So what do you guys think about these two? Or the idea of this new feature on my blog? Finally, if you have any suggestions for Cover Lust, please let me know through an email! I'm eager to put up more of these features in the near future!
