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?

Definetely like the old covers better. These new ones remind me of all the new vampire novels coming out...though, that's what could bring in new readers. Will he still be printing books with the older covers?

I think so. The newest book, The Wake of the Lorelei Lee, has a drawn cover like the other books. I don't know if they'll be doing it for forthcoming books, though. I'll ask Mr. Meyer, but he said that he really doesn't have any input in what the cover looks like, so I doubt he will know.
