Me, too. I have a tendency not to read the blurb unless the cover strikes me.
I find I use the covers as a way of picking books more with e-books than I ever did in a bookshop, guess there are just so many it's a quick filter online.
You've summed up my feelings on book covers almost exactly. A pretty cover will make me read the blurb or review and a favorite author can have a paper lunch sack for a cover and I'll read it!megan @ Read It, See It
I completely agree with you about the covers! That and the title captures my interest and then the blurb makes me decide. And authors I already like can definitely get away with bad covers! :)Great blog--I'm a new follower!My FF can be found here!
I'm horrible about browsing without a list and looking at pretty covers! I'm a new follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews
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.
