1
I like the nice bright pink. Very eye catching.
2
Solid pink stands out more.
3
The white text on a colored background seems more dramatic
4
the all pink background and white text catches my eye faster
5
I like the red one better because it pops more.
6
The pink definitely seems geared towards females. I also like that it is indeed a color contrast rather than white which seems a bit boring to me.
7
colors are better
8
pink!
9
I like darker colors.
10
Option B looks like it would only attract females
11
All pink looks better
12
Choice A stands out more and I would definitely notice it over other books in a bookstore or library.
13
I think the main color being pink is more eye catching.
14
The contrast helps you read the title easier.
15
The pink really accentuates the book and is eye catching.
16
I like the white lettering on the pink cover better - it stands out.
17

18

It stands out
21
You can see the black design better on the pink background.
22
I like the white font. I think it looks nice.
23
I think the text stands out better in option A

The color make you want to study the book cover longer, Made me a little more curious than the plain white.

the white letters stand out more against the all pink background
26

27
i like the look
28
Catches my eye more
29
The dark background is easier on the eyes.
30
The pink cover really stands out over the white one and makes me more interested in picking it up and reading what it is about.
31
The pink background is more appealing for the eyes
32
Option B has to much white space and white in general. The designs that are in the background of option B, are too highly contrasted, and draw attention away from the relevant text.
33
The hot pink cover catches your eye faster.
34
I like pink
35
i like the hot pink background
36
like pink cover better
37
Easier to see the background graphic in A
38
I don't like the white background
39
It looks better in contrast with the writing. It also "pops" more.
40
Choice B seems a little overdone.
41
Color makes it appear more friendly, less of a strenuous read.
42
It looks less busy
43
I enjoy both equally.
44
The book is more colorful. White in this situation seems dull, generic, and boring. The other book stands out more and I would be more willing to take a closer look at it.
45
I think the read really stands out.
46
A is a little more pleasing to the eye. B is a little to bright and harder to look at in my opinion
47
It has a spark into it because it has more colors.
48
The hot pink background and bold white text stands out better overall against other books. Option B would look too much like many other books already on shelves and may have trouble catching readers'/buyers' attention. Go with Option A!
49
Something about the angle of B turns me off. I feel like the book is already pointing away from me, while the pages of A entice me to open the cover.
50
It's more aesthetically pleasing.
51
brighter cover
52
It's bolder
53
The more pink one was more eye catching
54
I like the White on Pink better for some reason, maybe the contrast.
55
It looked better than B.
56
The white background in option B causes the focus to be on the black Lettering. I like option A better because the focus is on the title of the book.

38
I like the cleaner, simpler look of the white background.
39
The solid pink in A is too overwhelming
40
The hot pink is a little too overwhelming and might discourage some males (I think) from picking it up. I like the color usage in cover B much better.
41
The full pink cover is distracting.
42
option A looks too breast-cancer ish
43
It makes the title pop and easier to read. Additionally, the small description sticks out better

68

69
I don't care for the color pink so the less of it the better.
70

71
I think the background image stands out better
72
White background
73
I love the colors, but the white in the background stands out so much better than the pink.
74
If the majority of the book is pink I think its for women only
75
The extreme amounts of bright pink in A makes me think the author isn't smart. The pink letters on a white background is feminine but not obnoxiously.
76

77
The white background makes the font stand out much more.
78

I like the choice of color better
82
The title stands out more and is easier to read, plus I just like the design better.

84
More pleasing to the eyes
85
highest contrast for the important things. easier on the eyes
86
The contrast in color works better with the words beings darker than the white background.
87
I'd rather the pink text on a white background than the opposite as it is easier to read (although truth be told I don't like either cover).
88
I like book B better because I feel like the white background with the dark pink letter allowed the title of the book to stand out more.
89
The white background is more visually compelling. Better contrast.
90
I like the white background better

94
the white background makes the lettering stand out more
95
The two tone look (cover and binding) is very appealing to me.

Option b is easier to read and more appealing.
122
Im a guy and if there is too much pink going on I would be embarrassed to carry a women's book.
123
The all pink one is just a little overwhelming in color. It cheapens the book.
124
Option B has less pink on the cover and stands out better.

I love the pink but I like the combination of pink and white even better
131
I think image B presents a more clean look. It is something that is more likely to draw my attention.
132

Option B looks slightly less boring than option A.

140
Better contrast
141
I like the contrast of colors better on book B.
142
I think the white background makes the title stand out better. Too much pink on the first book. I would probably not look at the title because of the predominantly pink cover.
143
White background seems more clean
144
I prefer B because the I think the letters stand out better on a white background. I feel the other one looks to feminine and stands out too much.
