Judging a Book Friday Follow & Hop

Apr 8, 2011

hop This week’s feature is brought to us by:



Lesley @ My keeper shelf

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

Answer:  Yes and No!  Here’s dealio;  If it’s an author I know and have been on the look out for his or her book, then my answer is No, the cover doesn’t matter to me.   Now, I always buy something extra and that extra has to catch my eye, it has to compete with all the other covers on the shelf. So, YES, covers do matter! 



Later today!….


  1. Definitely agree there! When it's an author I already like then I don't care about the cover! Although sometimes it can be a tad embarrassing for me to read in public, but that's what Hide-a-Covers are for!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  2. Hi Dana! 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!!!

  3. I'm guilty of browsing for pretty covers when shopping without a list! But learned the hard way to never buy a book just because I like the cover. I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  8. I agree with this! Thanks for stopping by my blog. ^^

  9. I'm the same as you! If the book is by an author I love or a series I love, I'll buy it no matter what's on the cover. I usually rely on bloggers' reviews though. New follower :) Have a good weekend!

  10. Thanks for coming by Dana! I'm pretty sure I'm a bookaholic too :D

  11. Thanks for stopping by, I'm your newest follower. Have a great week!

  12. Hopping back! Certain authors are auto buy no matter what the cover looks like but a nice cover will make me check a book out further.

  13. Thanks for the follow! I'm here to return the favor. Jen at
