The description for this is: "Read a book with water on the cover, or where someone turns on the waterworks (i.e., cries) because of an emotional event."


It turns out that I have lots of books with water on the cover - the total number is in the double digits. At the moment I'm debating between:


Dragon Sword and Wind Child - Noriko Ogiwara,Cathy Hirano,Miho Satake  Decision at Doona - Anne McCaffrey  


Dragon Sword and Wind Child has ridiculously gorgeous cover art. It's fantasy, but other than that I don't know much about it.


Although I've read many of Anne McCaffrey's books, I haven't read Decision at Doona. It's "first contact" science fiction, which I tend to gravitate towards.


Decisions, decisions...
