A dark blue book cover. "The Five People You Meet in Heaven" covers the top half and "Author of the international bestseller: 'Tuesdays With Morrie'" is across the bottom. Both are in white text. In the middle is a white Ferris wheel sitting on a red banner reading "Mitch Albom".
A long time ago, Starbucks was selling this book and I sat down with coffee to flip through it to see if it was worth buying... Three hours later I'd read the whole thing...without buying. Whoops. So good! [Turned into a TV movie in 1999--from Wikipedia]
