30 Day Book Challenge: Day 19

Last year I found this book challenge (since then I have seen many variations of it, but I like this one best!), and have been intrigued about how I would answer the questions posed. Feel free to comment with your own answer or post the challenge to your own blog.

Favorite Book Cover (Bonus points for posting an Image!)

Here are some choice covers from a book I love to collect just for the covers!
Some are just concepts, but don't they all just scream "I'm The Scarlet Letter!"
I love The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I love teaching it. I love to read it every year. I love to look at its new covers...as publishers try to entice young adults to purchase and read it. I own many of the copies above, just because I liked the covers. The big picture with the 'Gossiping Gerties', the flowy hair and the gorgeous rosebush is by far my new fav! But, look at some of the others:

1] First row, second from left is Scaffold #2...sigh...
2] First row, fourth one is the only one I've ever seen that has a male on the cover...I can only assume it's Dimmesdale without Hester or is that the hotty picture of Nathaniel himself?...I wonder who the publisher thinks the book is really about?
3] First row, fifth one is the cover of the book I teach...I think Hester is so pretty in that picture!
4] First row, final one is the cover of my first personal copy. I bought it used and added notes to the notes that were already there.
5] Second row, final one is concept cover, I believe, but I love it! It looks a little bit mid-century and the dress says the word 'adultery' over and over...
6] Third row, second one, must have come out after Twilight, hmmm...???

  1. I admire you for doing this. "Assignments" are so hard for me to do. One photo or prompt, OK, but every day? The A-Z Challenge really challenged me. The Scarlet Letter so interesting to read again. Did Nathaniel Hawthorne really understand women though?
