Follow Friday

Hi everyone!  Welcome to all my new and old visitors.  It's Follow my book blog Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View and this is my first time participating. 

This week's question comes from My Keeper Shelf 

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

A.  I am gonna be honest and say yes, I do.  I tend to notice the cover first while searching through books.  If the cover is pretty or eye catching, then I immediately go and look at the description.  If the description doesn't interest me, then I won't even worry about how pretty the cover is.  The only times that I don't judge a book by it's cover is when I have heard fantastic things about the book or if it is by an author that I really love to read. 

Feel free to comment cause I love them and read every single one of them.  I'd also love to hear your answers...Leave me a link for yours so I can check it out.

Don't be afraid to follow either, cause I will gladly return the favor.  Just let me know if you are a new follower in your comment;)

  2. Thanks for commetning (:

    My answer is basically the same as yours - covers are what sparks the reader's interest, so of course they're important (:

  6. It is sometimes hard to stay away from those flashy covers, but there are definitely some out there with way too much going on.

    Thanks for visiting!

  7. It's true that if the cover's pretty but the summary isn't too great, the cover itself isn't enough to make me take out the book.

    I love your background! And I'm a new follower :)

  8. Hi Jamie, thank you for the follow, and I am returning the favor. You have read my answer already for the question to the Friday Follow hop and I forgot to say the description does matter. The cover gets my attention but even if the cover isn't that great, the description can still hook me. You have a wonderful blog and I think we share some of the same guilty pleasures. Thanks again for coming by mine.

  10. That`s me all the way! But the cover is meant to be eye catching mainly in the YA Genre!

  13. I love comparing covers from around the world. But never become the parameter for me to judge it good or not.

    Thanks for stopping by. I follow you as well

  15. I 100% agree with you. A pretty cover will get me to read the summary and look up reviews. But I won't buy a book just because it's pretty.

  16. I agree. I've made the mistake of buying a book that I was only slightly interested in because it had a beautiful cover and was disappointed, so I don't anymore.

    New follower :-) Happy reading!

  17. 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!?

  18. Thank You For visiting my blog! Happy FF ! I hope you will come back again! I love your answers! My favorite couple would be Sherrilyn Kenyons, Dark Hunter, Tabith & Valerius... You cant get any funnier then this....

    I don't know. I hear some godawful kind of music from outside, horns blaring, and I'm in a house with a Mohawk cuckoo bird, a transvestite, and a knife-wielding lunatic. (Valerius)
    Why are you at Tabitha's? (Acheron)"

  19. Agreed! A nice cover definitely catches my eye but the storyline needs to be good. If I haven't read a bad covered book before I do really need to rely on the good opinion of another person. New Follower!
