Year of the Monkey!

You know, there used to be a sales gimmick that publishers used to try to boost sales: monkeys. Put a monkey or an ape or a gorilla on the cover, and sales were bound to go up for that issue. I mean, who doesn't love monkeys, right?

I thought I'd take a quick gander to see how often publishers are still using the monkey motif, so here's some books that have come out in 2006 that feature a primate on the cover...

Hmm... I couldn't find nearly as many as I would've thought. Maybe that's the biggest problem in the industry today: not enough monkeys!
