Comparing Covers is a new feature on Lampshade Reader. I will showcase a book title that has multiple covers; from first editions to re-releases.
Let’s face it, some time or another you’ve purchased a book, only to realize that you already have it in your collection. I consider myself GUILTY! Partly because, it’s been so long since I’ve read the particular book or even forgot I had it. Case in point: Jude Deveraux.
She’s been writing books for a long time. I’ve inherited some of my mother’s books and I simply can’t remember every book she’s written. So it’s only natural to see a nice shiny cover in the bookstore and go “MINE!” and then when I get home, “Oops, I have that already.”
FYI: That’s kind of a pet peeve of mine. Why do publishers have to confuse us?
The Enchanted Land by Jude Deveraux
Was originally released 1978 and has five different covers.
I have to say, I do like the first one because it kind of represented the story better. I’m a sucker for those kinds of covers anyway. My second favorite would have to be the 2011 one.
Have you accidentally bought the same book?
