Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday!

Happy Friday everybody! Time for the book blog hop and Follow Friday! The Book Blog Hop question will be posted later today so make sure to check back later and see my answer to that question. In the meantime, this week's question from Parajunkee is:

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Absolutely! I have no shame in admitting this. It's the cover of the book that will grab my eye. But I don't buy a book based on the cover alone. I will read the description on the back of the book, and I also read a few pages to see if I'm going to like it. If a book doesn't have a good cover, then chances are that I won't pick it up.

Do you judge a book by it's cover? Let me know!


  1. Oh, the cover is always what grabs my attention! It's what I rely on when I don't have a book list when shopping! I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  2. I feel EXACTLY the way you do. It is so similar that I don't know what to say. I don't want to say, "I agree," and move on because I don't want you to think I am spamming you or posting the same message on every blog (I don't do that). So I will ramble instead. lol. Have a great weekend.

  3. I don't buy based on covers alone either but a nice cover goes a long way to get me to pick it up or read about it in the first place.

  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!?

  6. New Follower hopping by to say hi...I am a sucker for a pretty cover, if the cover is pretty and the back of the book interests me I'm sold! Happy Reading =o)

  7. New follower here via the Friday blog hop. I am a new contemporary romance writer and a reader of almost anything! Hope you stop by and check out my blog.

    And, without a doubt, I judge a book by it's cover. The cover is what makes me pick it up or walk away.

  8. Ohhhhhhhhhhh...the cover definitely sways me.

    It most definitely gets me to check out the book's content. :)
