Book Blogger Hop
This Weeks Question is:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
I totally do. When I go to a book store, or even search the recommendations that Amazon has for me, there is just so many books to look through, that I look first at the cover art, then the title, and finally the description of the book. I don't really dig books that are mainly about romance, so I have typically avoided books that depict characters that look all lovey. Some of my favorite books I bought because they had a totally awesome cover. I wasn't even sure I'd like them based on the description on the back, but I just couldn't get that cover out of my head. I've had only one or two bad experience, and thankfully in those cases the book wasn't horrible, it was just ok.
Now, let me clarify this, if a book has an ugly cover, it is not enough to prevent me from reading it. If I see it enough as a suggestion, either constantly being faced forward at the book store or constantly recommended to me on Amazon or by friends, then I will always look at the book and give it serious consideration. After all, what is really important is what is inside those covers; the outside just helps to draw me in faster.
