Follow Friday

And this week's question is:
Do you judge a book by it's cover?

I sure do! If I have not heard anyone talk about the book, the cover is the first thing my opinion settles on. If the cover doesn't scream: "HEY! PICK ME UP!" I will pass it by. A book is a product and if it is published someone or a bunch of someones spent a lot of time on it; it should be good!


  1. Hi newest follower :)
    I totally agree with everything you said. A good cover will draw me in.

    Come check out my blog if you have time:

  2. The cover is always the first thing I notice! It can take me a long time to try out a book with a cover that I didn't like. I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  3. Fellow Cover Lover here but like you; if the synopsis doesn't interest me then I'm not buyiny!

    New follower hop on by and see me!

  4. 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 -

    Thank God it's Follow Friday!?

  8. A cover is what first draws me to a book, but it's the blurbs/reviews/ratings that make me actually buy/read it. But I rarely pick up a book with an unattractive cover.

  10. Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! I followed all of you too!

  11. A cover is what gets my attention. Have I bought a book just because it has a cool cover??? Oh yea! The question is will I read it... I have no trouble feeding my by every book in sight addiction. If the cover is cool, and the synopsis intrigues me... I will take it off the nightstand and read it, otherwise its just beautiful decoration.
