Every Friday we also answer a question. This week's question is:

DO YOU JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER?
My answer is: Yes, definitely. There are some books I won't even take off the shelf because of their covers (those are the ones with the bare-chested men on them) AND others that I immediately grab because of the covers. It may be superficial of me, but I have to feel comfortable walking around with a book and if the cover is embarrassing, I won't read it. It's just me.

What do you think? Make a comment and let me know!

  1. Yes, I surely do judge a book by the cover. Not always but more often then not. I'm known for not reading synopsis so if your cover doesn't show me what I want to know or if someone doesn't recommend it... chances are I'm reading someone else's book.

    Please do stop by for a crumpet, find out about a new MeMe & to check out my newest giveaway :)

  3. I do. My friends once made a blog which post many kind of cover from all around the world. We started to compare it and having fun with it.

    However it's not always become the parameter for me to buy one book

  8. Hi Alleluia Lu! New follower here. Would love for you to follow me. Nice to meet you.

    For me, it is the cover and the title that tempt me to read the blurb. If the blurb reads great, I'll grab the book. I remember the first time I saw Harry Potter's book covers, I was like, O_o...not sure if I liked them. Love the inside but the covers weren't really to my taste.
    Happy Follow Friday!!!

  11. 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!?

  12. Personally I tend to judge books after cover, yes. But it's the storyline that decides if I will give it a try. The cover only makes me want to know more! :)

    A little late hop here, but I just noticed you now. :) Like the blog. I'm following!

  14. I am a horrible cover snob, unless it's an author I know or someone has recommended it to me, I won't pick a book up unless I like the cover. :P
