I am terrible with names. When people mention authors and book titles, my eyes kind of glaze over and I politely nod so no one knows that I'm not quite who they're talking about.
I remember covers.
If someone told me about the cover with the shirtless angel guy falling in a dark sky, I would know what book they were talking about.
If someone described a girl wearing a knitted toque, sitting on a swing, I would know what book they were talking about.
If someone talked about a book with a girl trapped in a green ball, I would know what book they were talking about.
I'm a very visual learner, so for me the cover is everything. When I read reviews, I remember the cover and that's what I look for when I go to the bookstore.
How about you? Do you remember author's names and titles, or do you remember the cover more?
PS: For those doing NaNo, how are you doing. I'm at 12K, so far so good.
