Guilty, as charged. I try not to be a judgmental person, but when it comes to books I let myself run wild. The truth is, I’m drawn to books by the work of art on the cover. As a reader I need a book’s cover to interest or inspire me.

If you click the photo, you can follow the link to New York Times favorite book cover designs of 2012. I really enjoyed looking through these works of art, and honestly I want to read every single book! (What else is new?)

Do you have any favorite book covers? And be honest, are you a book-cover judger?
