Book Blogger Hop and Follow My Blog

Book Blogger Hop 

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee!

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Guilty!  It's usually what first captures my interest.  It's either that or the title.  After that I read the blurb.   Unless, it's a favorite author.  Then it's doesn't matter what's on the cover.  I'll read it! 


  1. Me, too. I have a tendency not to read the blurb unless the cover strikes me.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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!?
