Follow Friday is feeling lonely without his buddy, Blogger Hop.


Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View.

This week's question:

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Not really. It's true that I tend to overlook books with dull/common covers, and only take an interest in them because of a rec/buzz/whatever. BUT I wouldn't think a book is awesome because it has a pretty cover, or vice versa.

Happy Friday!

I do judge a book by its cover as it draws me in.

Unfortunately, I judge a book by its cover most times, but when I realize that it's not as good as I thought, I stop reading it already. Which has happened to me a few times. I also try to look for book reviews of a specific book before getting a copy if that's possible.

New follower from the hop! Have a great weekend :D

I'm the same way! I get really frustrated when the cover doesn't match the book too. I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

I agree. A great cover is not enough but they make me squeal with glee.

Katie said...

I totally agree with you about the book just being awesome because of the cover! Love your blog, and new follower!

Very reasoned approach to book covers. Covers are most important for me in browsing in person - online where I can see ratings and reviews I tend to ignore the cover.

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!?
