Stop By and Join In Our "Follow Friday" Fun Time!

Oh, so caught by a book's cover, I had to tell the truth on Parajunkee's Follow Friday's current question from her guest today.  I've always been drawn in by an intriguing or beautiful cover.  As an artist, myself, I can't help "reading" the nuances of the covers...so much of the book is given away that way!  I love to look at them as I'm reading.

This doesn't preclude the fact that I'm also a true reader, so I do read the summaries and flip around in the book before I lay my money down, however.  But, (sigh) truth be told, I'm a sucker for a beautiful cover!

Please leave a comment about how covers affect you!  And, go by Parajunkee's site to get involved in our "Follow Friday" to find some new friends and book blogs.




I love looking at all the pretty covers, but learned the hard way to never buy a book just because of the cover! I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews


While I try to never judge a book by its cover, I do admit that certain covers scream "read me" more than others, while other covers completely turn me off. I'm not as picky about "covers" when it comes to independent publishing, because I know not everyone has an artist at their disposal (I know I don't!). But when I'm browsing through a book store, covers really do stand out. Actually, titles stand out first, then covers, then the back cover blurb.

Thank you for your nice comment on my blog, Pretty Opinionated! Such a great thing to wake up to. I'm following you back!
