I have found that there are certain things that appeal to me in a book cover. For instance: the color pink (I discovered this when I passed by a Valentine's book display that was made up of pink books and realized I had read almost of them), realist pictures, and swirls. Quite likely there are more things that appeal to me, but these are what I am very aware of.
I also enjoy when I find a cover that uses the same image as another (notice here, here, and here), but I have made it a point to not actively seek these out but to instead be surprised and delighted when I come across them.
persistence!). I quickly made my way through those and the library's entire collection. So I started on The Baby-Sitters Club series. To this day, there isn't a book that fills me with quite the same feeling. I love these books dearly and have made it my personal goal to own every book associated with Ann M. Martin. I remember the first time I came across the updated cover for Kristy's Great Idea. I was absolutely delighted with the detail it entailed (and especially with the Nancy Drew book). I am certain that had I not already been so attached to this series, this cover would have made me give it a shot. I also enjoyed that the new covers included pictures of which girls were in the books. Since there are so many in the series, it made it easier to remember continuity when I didn't read them in order. I like the newly updated covers too. Though they don't catch my eye the way the old ones do (and I really do miss the BSC logo), I feel that they appeal to girls in today's generation (boy, saying that makes me feel old).- especially more that the picture of four girls in 80's apparel.
So that is my rambling for the day. Overall, it's not neccesarily covers that get my attention when wanting something to read, but I have learned what I find attractive.
