I'm with HarryT, I don't usually buy books based on the cover. I normally buy a book because of the author, recommendations or reviews. But, there are two exceptions:
- If there are two different editions in the shop, I will choose the cover I like best, even if it costs a little more.
- If I am just browsing, I will pick up a book because the cover caught my eye. That could be in either a good or a bad way. An anime style cover is not likely to do that.
