Book Blogger Hop


This meme is hosted by Crazy for Books, so hop on over her way to see what she is up to!

Here is this weeks question: Do you judge a book by its cover?


Short answer is YES! I think that it's hard not to. Of course, if a book comes on a great recommendation then a bad cover won't stop me from reading it. Still, if I have a whole stack of books sitting on my desk, or if I browsing around the library or bookstore, then a good cover will make all the difference. A great cover can grab your attention and pull you in, it can entice you to read the back cover or front flap, it can make you excited for the book before you even read a single page. So yeah- great covers can make all the difference!

Here are some blogs I found while hopping around last week:

  1. It's just the same for me, a good cover does lure you in. Even though it's a bad habit for sometimes you find yourself stuck with a horrible one..

  2. Stopping by via the hop...I think it depends - there's a place and time when book covers come into play as to whether I will read the book.

    Happy Friday!

  5. I'm here via the hop! I agree with you. Covers just seem to be your initial impression of books and we all know how important those are! ;)

  9. I do pick up a book because of its cover...not necessarily buy it, but it does make me pick it up and check it out.
