Follow Friday (10)

Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee where you can discover great blogs and make some new friends while you're at it. Happy Friday!

This week's question:
Do you judge a book by its cover?


Have to admit, I do. A cover that draws my attention makes me want to read that book more, but I'll also give books with less appealing covers a chance too.

  1. Oh, I do too! That's the first thing I go for when I'm book shopping... those addictive gorgeous covers!

  3. Hi Liz-- I love the name of your blog :) I definitely judge those covers too, although I kind of feel bad for doing so, because what if someone is an awesome writer but they couldn't afford the marketing to get a gorgeous, eye-catching cover and so no one reads their book?

    Anyways, this is my FIRST Follow me Friday, pretty happy to be chatting it up with lots of other bloggers and meeting new people :) I am now a follower-- have a great weekend!

  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.

  13. Yes I do judge a book by it's cover. I'm a visual victim. But I will read things recommended to me. Or if I read a blurb that catches my interest.

    I'm now an official follower! Great site!

  15. It's harder for me to give books with ugly covers a chance without a recommendation from someone.

  16. I think everyone judges a book by it's cover, whether they mean to or not. It's just what we do.

  18. Hi Liz,

    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 tastes.

    Happy Follow Friday!!!

  21. Hi there! Love your blog. Really nice! I'm following.

    And I'll admit I judge books by the covers as well. I can't help it since it's what draws me in, whether I'm online or in a store. I'd never buy a book just based on the cover though!

  25. I don't get influenced by covers much. I definitely notice them especially if they are really pretty but I usually choose books based on the summary.

  27. 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!?

  28. Hey Liz- I definitely agree! It's good to give all books a chance, but great covers can really draw you in! Btw, I'm a returning follower and think your blog is really cute!

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts, soon! :)

  29. Just stopping by the Friday Follow...I'm also a sucker for a pretty cover but try to reach out to the not so pretty covers every once in a while! Have a great weekend!

  30. Hey Liz! How are you?

    I'm like you, I'll read books with covers I don't like, but I usually read the ones with the nice covers first :D
