Follow Friday #5

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee View.

This week's question is:
  
Do you judge a book by it's cover?
 
Yes!  When I'm in the book store I scan the shelfs and when I see a book with a cover I like I will pick it up to see what its about. 
 
Just Nook It!  Theresa

  1. I'm the same way! If I'm in the bookstore not really knowing what I'm after the cover is usually what makes up my mind! I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  4. I'm the exact same way. If a bookstore wants to get me interested in not-so-prettily-covered books, they need to do a lot of selling, like putting it in a bestsellers section or something.

  5. That's what I do! If a cover really grabs me, I pick it up and read the back to see if the story fits my liking as well! Hardly ever disappointed either!

  6. I do the same thing when I go to the bookstore! I sometimes find books that are totally out of my genre to read because the cover was so gorgeous :D

  8. Covers matter most to me when I'm browsing in a physical book store - they matter a lot less online where I can see ratings/reviews right along with the cover.

  9. 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!?
