Can you judge a book by its cover?

icecreamCover2This is the rhetorical question posed by Book Daily:

Rhetorical question for most; Real dilemma for authors. After spending what feels like decades writing your masterpiece and surviving several rounds of brutal editing, it can be daunting to have to then vet cover designs. However, it would be naive to think that the cover of your book is immaterial and shouldn’t require much effort. It’s the first thing readers see and is expected to offer a creatively brilliant interpretation of what’s inside. Book covers can attract or propel and complete objectivity is virtually impossible. With all that said, what do you think makes a great book cover? What are some of your favorite book covers?

I would like to know what you think.
