New Book Covers

Mr. Meyer says that they are re-releasing the paperback books with new covers:




To quote Mr. Meyer directly (original post is here):

"Anyway, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, our publishers have, in their wisdom, decided to re-issue the paperbacks (a good thing), with new covers for all.
I am going to post all the ones I have seen so far here for your comments and discussion. If any of the mods think it should go elsewhere, then put it there.
Remember, those of us here at Faber Shipping have absolutely no input into these things... it's all Marketing and Sales.
We are withholding comment. What do you think?"











What do you guys think?
As I said on the boards, I think they're kind of cool, even if the tattoo is in the wrong place. They're not ideal, but they're not completely horrible either. I will always like the original covers best, but I feel like these may attract new readers. That can never hurt, right?

They're okay. I prefer the originals, but these are not bad. I'll probably buy the first couple, because they're the only two I don't own right now. Unless of course, the originals are still for sale on Amazon...

But it's good that they're rereleasing new books -- they must be still doing pretty well in sale. And of course, like the OP said, attracting new readers is always a good thing!
