Follow Friday.....

Another week has come to an end.  Nothing too exciting to report except that I'm FINALLY going to read the new BDB installment this weekend.  Had other commitments first, but now it's me time.  It's now on to that time of the week where we bloggers get to know each other better by answering a question posted by our wonderful hostess Parajunkee.  Without further ado, it's now time for.....





The question for this week is....

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

-Yes, I do somewhat.  If the cover conveys a storyline I love (like rock stars) then I'm definitely more likely to buy it.  Bright colors or sexy heroes with rippling abs all by themselves are covers I'm also drawn to.  JR Ward's covers for her BDB series are my favorite covers and I get giddy waiting to see what the next one will look like.

  7. 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 :)

  17. Hi Joder! New follower here. Nice to meet you!

    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!!!

  22. 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!?
