  1. It's difficult to decide. I think I like the middle two the best. I've read Jane Eyre twice. While I did like it, it isn't one of my favorites.

  2. The fact that it's Jane Eyre would make me read it! All of these covers are better than the one I've got lol, but I like the red one with the key quite a lot, very simple but striking.

  3. The first one stands out to me the most. The simple silhouette draws me in.

  4. I think that my fave is the last. That woodcut is gorgeous and so sombre.
    But the simple silhouette is a fabulously simple yet effective design.

  5. I like the one with the silhouette, mostly because of its simplicity, but also because it looks like my usual ponytail.

  6. I love many of those, but I'm partial to the Gothic Penguin one on the bottom left. You're making me want to collect the different editions!

  7. Too me, the second to last one catches the mood of the book the best, as I remember it. I also think it would entice me the most to read it--I find it more emotive than the rest. The one with the key is pretty, but wouldn't necessarily motivate me to read it. Although I would read this one no matter what cover was one it!

  8. I love the first one and the red one with the key. Isn't it funny how different each one is, yet it's all the same story.

  9. Ack!! There's a new Penguin Classics Deluxe Cover illustrated by Ruben Toledo!!!! Thank you for letting me know. I had numerous copies of Wuthering Heights before and when the Ruben Toledo cover came out I still had to have it. Now I need the Jane Eyre too, even though I have the Vintage Classics silhouette cover (the first one) and another paperback by Modern Library. I'm so cover crazy and it isn't healthy.
