What’s with All of the Posts About Cover Art?

One thing that I’ve noticed, and I must admit that I don’t really understand, about fantasy literature blogs is that nearly all of them (or at least the ones that I have read) do posts about book cover art. Some of them are simple posts that essentially amount to “hey this is what so-and-so’s new book is going to look like” and some are really in-depth analysis about the art and what it might mean. And people seem to respond to these posts like crazy. And while I’d understand the occasional post about a book cover, these posts are constant. What I really don’t get though is why. Why so much discussion about cover art? What am I missing?
