Thursday Cover Throwdown (01/20/2011)

Thursdays will be the day that I compare book covers for one book and we decide which ones we like best. The books I choose to feature are usually the ones where there are multiple covers and I have a debate at the bookstore on which one to get. Or if I know there is another cover out there in the I wait until I find the cover I like?

Here is one of those books...

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was one of those books that I HAD to read before I watched the movie. And I'll be honest...I did prefer the movie. However when it came to choosing which book ti buy it was an easy choice for me. I like the simplicity of the book on the left and that is the one that sits in my bookcase.

What about you...which one do you like???

***Now go and grab your fave cup of tea or because Mariah is our guest, grab her preference of a salted caramel hot chocolate OR peppermint hot chocolate (or whatever beverage your prefer) and HAPPY readings***


  1. I really don't like tie in covers, so like the original cover. The movie and book was heartbreaking, I liked both.

  2. Hi Melissa...that's a good point about movie tie-in covers. They usually aren't that nice compared to the original cover. And you're so right about both book and movie being heartbreaking : (
