I remember when Andre Dubus III's House of Sand and Fog was hot. Going into the book store was being a judge in a "Best photograph of an empty boat dock" contest.

Yeah, working in a bookstore I've seen many mysteries with identical titles, different books that use the same stock photo and of course, similar trends in covers. It was even worse in the video store. When Pretty Woman came out every singe romantic comedy was re-packaged with a white background and a big pink font. Ugh.
