Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?

A.  I have to admit that the cover is the first thing I look at and almost decide right then if I even want to read the description.  I have loved some books that I almost passed up by judging the cover first.

  1. Hey Jamie! I definitely agree! It's hard to pass up a really awesome book cover- especially if you're familiar with the author or are just in the mood to try something new!

  2. I think we can all agree that even the most beautiful book cover can't sell a book if the writing's not there. Book cover art may, at best, help steer me in the book's direction (especially if I'm in a book store) but it's not going to hypnotize me into buying it right then and there.

    I expound on all the marketing qualities of a good book. Just follow me back to my book blog - http://www.howardsherman.net

  3. I think we all judge a book, whether we want to or not. As long as there are words to paint a new world for me I'm happy.

  4. Hopping through. I love looking at covers but ultimately the summary is the most important.

    And I absolutely judge a book by its cover! If I like the cover, I pick it up. It's as simple as that.
