Best Book Covers of 2010

I love browsing book displays, both at the library and at bookstores. It can be kind of like an art show. A great cover is often what gets me curious enough about a book to pick it up and read a page or two.

Quill and Quire has just released their picks for the best covers of the year. Perhaps one of the covers will intrigue you to take a closer look?
I liked four out of five of the covers. For some reason John Gould's cover just doesn't grab me.

Take a look and also check out Q&Q's design comments.
