How often does the cover art influence your purchase?

I love book cover design. Does that make me lame?
Anyways, Penguin has published a series of its classic titles, with new book cover designs created by some of today's hottest graphic novel and comic artists. Some of my favorite artists have contributed, like Chris Ware, Tomer Hanuka, Frank Miller and Art Spiegelman.

Here is a flickr collection of the covers accumulated by Paul Buckley.
