I enjoy judging books by their covers. I enjoy it so much, in fact, that I’ve made a game out of my sneaky hobby. The game works something like this: enter bookshop, pick 5 or 6 books with appealing covers, guess which one will be the most satisfying, and then read the first chapter of each book. Win the game by purchasing the book you originally judged to be the most enjoyable.
Books sometimes take a couple chapters to really hit their stride (just like dating, right?), but that’s not what this game is about. I’ll read reviews and give the less-well-dressed novels a chance when I order them on Amazon.
The books above are the contenders for this week. Which cover do you like the best?
