Weekly Geeks 4













This week, at http://www.weeklygeeks.com/ we are asked to judge a book by its cover.
I chose The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman, because there aren't that many covers, and I'm a bit crap at uploading photos. Also, it's one of my favourite books. :)

These are the three photos I found:














I quite like them all and I believe the middle one is the one that most people are familiar with. I have the first one, illustrated by Chris Riddell; mostly because that was the one that was released here.

That's it.
Happy Weekly Geeks - live long and prosper :)

I like the one that you have, the first. :)

I like the first one the best. I just ordered this book for my middle school library...can't wait to get it!!

I love them all. And as happy as it makes me to see a Newbery sticker on a Neil book, I don't like the place where they put it, covering the ghost.

I think I like the one you have the best. I don't like the last one very much.

Kerrie said...

Interesting how they really each pick a different concept to highlight

Gavin said...

Ooh, I like the first one best. Would love to find a copy with that cover.

I really like the first one. I had only ever seen the second one but the first one is really my favorite.

First one appeals to me too!

Covered!

Jo said...

I've got the first one. Theres something about the last one that appeals to me though.

Robin said...

I can't wait to read this book!! I like the middle one with the Newbery Medal on it.

While I have the second one, I adore the third cover best. Maybe I'm morbid that way, hahaha!

Dorte H said...

Hm, I think I like them all but find it difficult to judge which is best because I don´t have a clue what the book is about :)

I like the 2nd one probably because that is the one I have and will be reading soon. Looking forward to it.

Like the first the best - the UK version the best. Something more interesting and more refined about it to me. What a timely post. Well done!

Terri said...

I love the UK version and that's what drew me to the book initially. But I was disappointed that here in the States - and my library - it was the second one. The illustrations were good, but that UK one....so provocative.

I like them all. But question is that bloody knife the kid is standing on in the third? I have read all the book yet.

I own the second one (without the Award sticker), but I love all three of them.
