Blog Hop 4/8-4/10



Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?

I try not to, but the pretty ones draw me in more. It has to be dripping with temptation.

I am guilty of judging a book by it cover. I think that a book has to appeal to me first before I look at a description.

I am trying to participate in a few hops to get my blog noticed.

I'm a New follower:)

Happy FF!!

The cover is always the first to draw me in, but I eventually get to the ones that didn't have a cover I liked! I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

I think it's hard not to judge the boos as well. It's the cover that captures your interest at first. And/or title for me. The storyline is what decides if I buy it or not though.

Really like your blog. :) Following.

My FF can be found here!

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!?

I used to judge books by the cover, until I discovered book bloggers. I've had some disappointing reads, that's for sure.

These days, I seek recommendations and don't worry about misleading covers. :) Yay for book bloggers! Once in a blue moon, I will see a cover I love that'll stop me. Like Divergent. Love that cover. But it didn't find a spot on my to read list until after I'd seen it on several blogs.

The other question: Nope. I don't participate in blog hops, but I do visit a select few blogs on a semi-regular basis.

Melissa said...

Hey everyone! Left comment on your blog! Thanks for visiting!


Reena!!!

I do love a good looking cover but I do like picking up books that others recommend for one reason or another :)

Please Stop by, I'm starting a new with a fresh look.  Let me know what you think.
