You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #303

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
 But you can like one cover version better than another...

Canadian cover
UK cover
Oh, I adore Jenny Colgan's feel good tales. Her latest - 500 Miles From You - arrives in a few months and is most definitely on my must read list. The Canadian cover  is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. The title takes top billing on the Canadian cover, while it's the author on the UK cover. I prefer the blue background of the Canadian cover to the pink?salmon? of the UK. The image on the Canadian cover denotes the distance and that it's city vs nature. Distance is also achieved with the UK cover, but not as well IMO. An easy choice for me this week - the bolder feeling Canadian cover. What about you?
Any plans to read 500 Miles From You? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I don't love either cover but think I prefer the Canadian cover as well.

It’s a toughie this week. Like the sea monster on the Cdn cover but prefer the pinky salmon cover to the powder blue. On the UK the man is pictured as being in the city, while the woman’s in the country, vs being in separate ends of the country.......hmmmm....a toss up but will go with the salmon cover.

Two to one for the Canadian cover this week!

Did you notice that the Canadian cover gives the main male character a different name? I’m reading an ARC from NetGalley and his name is Cormac not Connor. Interesting!

Oh Sunshine and Books, sharp eyes! No I didn't notice that! I wonder why they would have changed the name....hoping it's a good read!
