Follow Friday

The Follow Friday meme is hosted by Parajunkee and, well, it’s my first time doing this :)
This week’s question is: Do you judge a book by its cover?
I hate to say this, but yes, I do judge books by their cover. I know it means that I’ll probably miss out on some great book with a horrible/boring cover, but still. I mean, I sometimes pick up books just because their covers are so pretty. So, yes, I judge books by their cover.

    I always judge a book by its cover. I tend to only read the descriptions of the books that are eye catching and miss out on a lot of amazing reads. I do, however go to a book if the reviews are positive even if the cover isn’t.

    The cover always gets my attention first, but the description has to sell me! It can take forever to try out a book with a cover I didn’t like. I’m a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

    Hi, thanks for your visit and I agree. I judge even if we shouldn’t it is really hard not to grab up that cover that is really striking. It can be a bad way to go though as I have read some really amazing books and the covers were not really that great, and the other way around also where the cover rocked but the book itself did not.

    A new follower for ya :) and happy FF!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. All of us judge books by their cover to some extent. It’s tough not too. A pretty cover will make me pick up a book I otherwise wouldn’t notice. It’s an important part of the marketing process.

  6. 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

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!?

    I also admit to this. I mean, it’s hard not to judge a book by its cover! The first thing that meets your eyes is appearances! Rarely, a summary will make me want to read the book. It happens often, so I read the summary all the time :P
