Covers: Are you as crazy as me?

I'm putting together my next order of books today at my online book seller. I want Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella, because I love her. But the thing is there are three versions of her book and two covers, all different costs - because some are from America, others are from England, one is from here. So which cover would you choose out of these two.

 
1 < = > 2
Of course I instantly wanted No.1. It's $4 dearer than No.2...

I got it anyway....I couldn't say no to that cover!!!

Am I crazy?

Have you ever wanted a book with a certain cover so bad you've paid more, or taken the time to find a shop that will sell the cover you want?

I actually like the second cover better. I really like the sunflower!

I know what you mean. I love the hardback cover of Incarceron but wasn't too thrilled about the story, but I'd pay more just to own that beautiful cover.

Oh and I have cover #1 because that was the only cover available at that time. I like the first cover better, the soft colours just appeals to me. :)

Both covers are beautiful, but I have to admit
that I like cover #2 better =)

I gotta admit, I'm lovin' the first cover as well! It's so cute!

I own the second version, but I totally would've picked number one over it!

I judge a book by the cover all the time. Covers are really important.

I like cover #1 better!

I'll definitely pay extra (though not a ridiculous amount) money to get a certain cover, especially when the book is in a series and I want all the covers to match!

I love #1 cover but I already have #2 and don't think I need two copies.

I don't think I would pay extra just to get a different cover.

I'm with you, I love cover 1 and I would have paid extra for it. I've just done that when ordering Graceling, yeah I know it's a sickness LOL

I love Kinsella's books! And I agree with you, the cover on the left is more beautiful :)

I have the red one & I luv this book soooo much. This author is really amazing.<3

the cover plays an important part in holding the reader's attention.
I've paid for the same book with a better cover

Great pick!

Absolutely. I'd pay more for that UK Graceling cover any day!

I will pay more for a book cover I prefer as well. I see my book buying as an investment...
