Best Book Cover Ever

The Circle Cover

The New York Times just published The Best Book Covers of 2015I haven’t seen this particular list in the past but it hoisted me out of my chair to look through every bookcase in the house (five to date) for my favorite cover. There were so many contenders. Colorless by Haruki Murakami for the peek-a-boo inserts? Collier’s Encyclopedia Yearbook Covering the Year 1968 for its foddy simplicity? In the end, I went with the The Circle by Dave Eggers because, well, it can’t be ignored, and there is a sort of imperial command, “Read it. Read it now.” What’s yours?
