Book covers of the week and the National Book Award finalists

The 20 finalists for the 2010 National Book Awards were announced yesterday. While I understand that these finalists are to be judged on literature alone, I was excited to see a slideshow of the cover designs. After all, great cover design = more sales = the life of the publishing industry (I may have skipped a few steps but that's my theory). My three favorites are:
Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi
One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia
Parrot and Olivier in America by Peter Carey
