Friday Blog Hop (5) Follow Friday (4)

Friday Blog Hop is hosted by Jenn at Crazy-For-Books.   It is a weekend long Book Party giving bloggers a chance to get to know each other and access to new blogs that we all might enjoy! If you haven't stopped by to give the hop a look I highly suggest that you do! Also every week there is a new question posted for us at answer this weeks question is...

To be added later...



Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee, every week we all get together to answer a question and find new blogs that we enjoy. This weeks question is

Q. DO YOU JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER?

To some extent yes I do...it is a very bad habit I know...but if a book has a beautiful cover I am more inclined to pick it up and read the back which most of the time hooks me.  I have read some books where I though the cover was hideous and still loved the book so while I am attracted to pretty covers I still will read a book that doesn't have a pretty cover.

  1. I agree. Attractive colors inspire me to read that back and the back cover seals the deal for me.

  3. Hi Melissa! New follower here. Would love for you to follow me. 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!!!

  4. I'm the same way! A pretty cover will make me pick up a book I've never heard of, but I've read (and loved) plenty of ugly covers.

  5. I'm guilty of browsing by covers when shopping without a list! I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  6. 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!?

  7. I am always drawn to the pretty covers first, but I HAVE to check out reviews/summaries for a book before I buy it. :) I have a tiny book budget, so I don't want to get something that's going to stink!

    Thanks for following! I'm an old follower here!
