On the subject of re-releasing backlists am I the only one that searches out the original covers and puts them back on the book?

Nope. I search them out also.

Me too! I always add a cover and whenever possible, I search out the original.

So glad to hear it ! Though perhaps my obsession with ebooks may have been getting out of hand

Finding the original cover to Cynthia Wright's Caroline when it was a freebie is what sealed my devotion to this thread. Since I'm primarily a mystery reader, I was only browsing the Romance thread when I checked out Caroline because it sounded familiar. Then I found the old cover and remembered reading and loving it when it was new. I had that thick apricot-colored paperback in my library for years.

Next I bought and re-read some Lavyrle Spencer old favorites and now I fit a romance into my reading regularly. I'm with Melmac...I love this thread, too.

I generally choose the original cover, unless the new one is prettier.

She rewrites her books so they aren't the original.

Quote:
Authors Note, June 2012 - This new, subtly revised version of CAROLINE addresses concerns voiced by some contemporary readers. CAROLINE was originally written & published in 1977. In this new edition, I believe that Alec is a more mature alpha hero and Caro is a stronger heroine. If you have read and loved CAROLINE in the past, I think you will love it even more now!
I was lucky to purchase it before she did this though. So I have the original non P.C. version. I just wish I had gotten the rest of the series at the time.

No, I do as well. It is because I remember the book that way and not by the new cover. Sometimes I use the stepback covers as well. Here is an example:


This is what I think whenever I am thinking about this book so that is the image I use. Recently my nook changed the covers of some of my books and I used calibre to change them back because of this.

I'm saving that cover to use for books that don't have nice ones!

Looks like Fabio.

The book was Johanna Lindsey's Angel. The panther was the lady's pet. It was the third book in the Wyoming Series.

Yes, the same cover in Spain, but it's cut so you don't see her "pet" (I still have the paperback )
