Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday


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


My answer: A great book cover can initially attract me to a book, especially if it's bright or really stands out from the books around it. However, I still read the summary on the back or inside flaps (and maybe a page or two to really tell) to see if it's a book that I would like. So, I guess my initial judgement about a book is by it's cover since that's the first thing I see, but I'm willing to change my judgement regardless of the cover once I've checked it out further.


Book Blogger Hop

This hop has been postponed until later today. I will update my post once I see the question go up. Happy Friday everyone!

  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 - http://www.howardsherman.net
