Follow Friday


Q. Do you judge a book by its cover?
Unfortunately I do. Beautiful covers draw me in and I'm especially disappointed when the book fails to live up to the cover. On the flipside, it's hard for me to pick up a book that has an unattractive cover but once I get into it the cover really doesn't make a difference.

I'm exactly the same way. :)

I'm exactly the same with a pretty cover. I've picked up and read books based solely on their cover and had a hard time starting a book with a bad cover. It's kind of amazing actually how much a cover will influence me.

I agree! I've been burned by a few books that didn't live up to the cover. I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

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!?
