Welcome to the Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in the literary universe.  If you want to join us next week, check out next week’s predetermined them, choose a book, compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

The only true wisdom is to know that you know nothing’ – a cover featuring something from Greek mythology!

One fun thing about having kids different ages is getting to experience great movies, music, and books with each child.  It is always fun to see how each one reacts differently to the same things.  And this school year, my youngest son has been reading a series of books which my oldest children adored when they were younger but have gravitated away from due to their growing teen angst.  The series I’m referring to is Percy Jackson,  my pick this week Percy’s first adventure The Lightning Thief, because nothing says mythology like Zeus’s lightning bolt!

    Excellent choice sir! I would have chosen it too. And mainly because that’s the cover I read 😀

  3. I’ve had this series on my tbr for a long time, maybe one day I will read them with my kids when they reach the right age! Gosh, hard to choose my favorite cover, they’re all very nice. Probably the first one in the middle row, as my eye immediately went to it.

    I’ve still not read these books! My favourite is definitely the first cover 😀 Though they’re all quite striking!
