Judging a Book by its Cover

Do you judge a book by it's cover? I know I do. As a full-time Graphic Artist - it's impossible for me NOT to notice a book cover. The design of a book cover WILL and HAS affected my decision to purchase a book. If the cover is cheesy, I assume the contents will be cheesy too. If the cover is stylish and well thought out - I am more inclined to buy the book.

So, what are your favorite book covers?

Here is a book cover I have designed for my next novel. (I am lucky that I have the skills to design as well as write!) Would you pick this book up in a store to read the back?

Please give me your feedback as to what you look for in a design! what catches your eye?
