Sexist book covers

What if my husband's beloved Game of Thrones series had been written by a woman?

Yesterday author Maureen Johnson tweeted "I do wish I had a dime for every email I get that says, "Please put a non-girly cover on your book so I can read it. Signed, A Guy." So she challenged her 77,000 followers. A challenge that she called Coverflip.
Check out the full story and see some of the gender-twisted covers here. They are a true wake-up call! For example, here's one book written by a woman--and its girly cover--followed by what it would have looked like if written by a male author!
