Book Covers: Will They Matter For Much Longer? (VIDEO)

Some book covers have been so iconic that they become the logo for everything including the movie--think "The Godfather" and "Jaws"--and since the mid-1800s, they've often been what makes us walk toward a book in a store, pick it up, turn it over, open it and buy it. But in an age when the eBook and eReader are taking over and changing the way we shop, what will happen to the book cover and the extremely talented people who design them? They're such an integral part of the book buying and reading experience, it's hard to imagine life without them. Even when you buy an eBook, you can see a thumbnail of the jacket. But does that matter to you? Will we see this 150-year-old ornament to a book disappear within our lifetime? Watch this video below and let us know what you think.
