Snap!





Okay, I saw on Helen Kay's blog yesterday two different books with very similar covers. And some people were complaining that this can be very confusing. Well the two books above are two chicklit novels. I've read both of them. I read Jaye Carroll's first a couple of years ago. Then, last year, I picked up Bagshawe's book and thought 'Hey, I've seen you before'. But after reading the back cover blurb I knew I hadn't read it. So as I was going to pay for it I stopped in my tracks. On one of the top shelves I saw Carroll's book. The same cover except different colours. And I thought to myself, wow, I never knew that could happen.

So any thoughts?

Looking alike is one thing. Being exactly the same is another. Very frustrating. I bet it's frustrating for the author and publisher, too. Intellectually I know that, in this circumstance, publishers pay for the right to use a photo only. They don't buy the sole rights to the photo, so others can use it too. But still...

Sylvia Day has posted covers that seemed identical and the books were coming out in back-to-back months. That's just awful for everyone.

Like helenkay, I'm sure it's very frustrating to all parties involved, and as a reader, it's very confusing.

I'd be steaming mad if it happened to me.
