Blog Hoppin!

Answer the questions and follow the links to join in the fun!

Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Absolutely. Positively. Without a doubt. Yes! Front AND back covers. They need to be visual interesting and they need to relate to the text on the back. I don't like gimicky poses either. And if I don't like the cover, chances are I won't even pick up the book.



  1. Not a single "no" so far today! Seems we all do this! Myself included!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  2. Haha, I agree with Jessica! No one has said no yet! I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  3. I've seen one no I think, but not many no, no. Lol, many no:s there!

    Well, as you might guess I do this as well! Although it's the descriptions that decide whether I'll buy it or not. :)

  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!?
