It's Follow Friday! #11



Yes, it's that time of the week again! It's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee. The question of the week is:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
I'm completely guilty of this. If a cover catches my eye, I'm much more inclined to pick it up. However, I won't pick up a book just because of its cover. In the same sense, a book with a "bad" cover but an interesting plot, I'll still pick it up.

  2. I am usually drawn to the books with pretty covers first, but I always read the covers before I buy!

  4. Hi. I'm stopping through on Follow Friday and am a new follower. I am a lit major, as well, and it looks as though we have similar taste in books. I've fallen for the pretty cover trap plenty of times. It's often difficult not to judge by the cover, but it does happen.

  7. Hopping through. I love great covers. Bad covers won't kill a book, but definitely hurt it.

  9. Yes, I surely do judge a book by the cover. Not always but more often then not. I'm known for not reading synopsis so if your cover doesn't show me what I want to know or if someone doesn't recommend it... chances are I'm reading someone else's book.

    Please do stop by for a crumpet, find out about a new MeMe & to check out my newest giveaway :)

  13. Hi Kristen! Old follower here!

    For me, it is the cover and the title that tempt me to read the blurb. If the blurb reads great, I'll grab the book. I remember the first time I saw Harry Potter's book covers, I was like, O_o...not sure if I liked them. Love the inside but the covers weren't really to my taste.
    Happy Follow Friday!!!

  15. It's the first thing that attracts you to the book, guilty of it.

    stop and see mine and my giveaways.

  16. I'm the same way, the pretty cover will catch my eye and get picked up. I have learned to never buy a book based off of the cover though. I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  17. 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

    Thank God it's Follow Friday!?

  18. New follower! I always judge a book by it's cover! I can't help it; I'm superficial like that, haha :) But a book is a book no matter what! Have a happy weekend!

  19. It's definitely hard not to judge a book by its cover since there are so many gorgeous ones out there. I've found though that some of the less gorgeous indie books I've been asked to read can be MUCH better than many gorgeous-covered ones.

    Happy Follow Friday! I'm a new follower. I hope you'll check out my blog too!

  20. I do let the covers affect my initial opinion. But after I've read what's inside, my mind can be changed.
