Battle of the Book Covers

We’re told not to judge a book by its cover, but we readers must admit that we do it anyways! Book covers decorate a bookstore with many colors and either draw us to a book, or deter us away from one. Resulting from a different market and what different readers are drawn to, book covers tend to be different in various countries. Here are some examples!

The UK Cover is on the left and the US, on the right.
