Do you remember seeing Eat Pray Love in the bookstore with the words beautifully scripted in pasta and prayer beads?
Do you remember walking in to the same bookstore and suddenly seeing the cover with Julia Roberts enjoying her gelato?
When a movie based on a book is soon to be released, the books' publishers will usually release that book again with a new cover and watch the sales skyrocket. What sells a book better than Julia's pillowy lips, anyway?! (Personally, I'm more likely to buy based on the pasta...)
