Book Blogger Hop
This is the Book Blogger Hop, hosted at crazy-for-books.com

This week's question for discussion:

"What is your favorite book cover?"

I have to say, I am a sucker for covers with pictures of the characters, rather than abstract images.  When I was young, I took all my favorite ones to the color copy place, got them copied and enlarged, and decorated my bedroom with book covers.  Mostly of Dragonlance Books.  A few Redwall and Mercedes Lackey here and there too.  One of the best of those was The History of Dragonlance, which features this painting on the cover:


On the other hand, our hardcover of Lord of the Rings is lovely. It's this edition:

The dust jackets have beautiful Alan Lee paintings, while the cover itself is a lovely dark fabric with the Eye of Sauron inlaid in foil.

Of course, I'm also proud of the book covers that I worked on, although neither depict characters:




See Facsimile and For Love of Children on Amazon. 

(Hint, hint...)

This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!

Which book cover did I pick? I invite you to hop over to my blog and see for yourself.

Happy Thanksgiving Day Weekend!
