Follow Friday #11

Follow Friday hosted by Parajunkee

Q. DO YOU JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER?
Yes and No. A book should be nicely (and accurately) presented to us, the buyers. However, I do give not-so-pretty books a fair shot, sometimes good books are a little unlucky in the cover department.

  1. Oh I agree! Sometimes I will not try a book and realize that the cover was so not a right fit for the book I ended up loving! I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  2. I think thats why authors focus on covers because they know most of us really do judge books by the cover

  3. I agree, but I don't choose a book by its cover. I just notice a book because of its. I still may or may not buy it.

  4. I always feel sad for really great books that just didn't get lucky enough to get a great cover. It's such a bummer.

  5. 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!?
