Personally I like the first design better, unless you're considering splitting content into multiple books a la Whitebox?
Well everything is very speculative - It looks like 3 - 60 page books is more sensible then one 150 pager. Again it's not as if this stuff is publication ready - I may get distracted by like real work or life.
stop toying with my emotions
Show me the third cover! :-)
Take my money!
