Welcome to my Friday blog party!
"Follow My Book Blog Friday" is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View. Check out her site for awesome reviews, author interviews, and so many other cool book-related things. Oh yeah...and directions on how to join in the event!
This week's question: Do you judge a book by its cover?
*blushes* *looks sheepishly both ways* *shakes head yes*
I totally do. Guilty as charged. I'm TOTALLY a sucker for a beautiful cover and I think a lot of people are. Actually, we discussed this in my library materials for children class because so many library books have the unfortunately unappealing, plain library board book binding. Would you rather pick that book up or the latest by Melissa Marr with the beautiful cover? Very rarely will a kid or teen pick the former (unless, of course, it's a book required by school and then the cover makes them dread it even more). I have a lot of respect and admiration for the artists/graphic designers who design book covers because seriously, they can make you pick up or pass over a book.
