  48. For best cover, it was a tight race between Fallen & Nightshade, but Nightshade won. It's more colorful, and I love color. I haven't actually had the opportunity yet to read any of these books, but I've heard great things about each, and SO want to try them out.
    Thanks for this AWESOME chance! I, too, tend to judge a book by its cover.
