TGIF!! Friday's Hop and Follow Day! 9/3/2010

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books every Friday and it's a great way to discover other blogs that you might not find otherwise.  It's also a great way to show support to other book bloggers.  The rules are listed over at Crazy For Books, with a question of the week.  This week the question was submitted by Sarah @ Sarah Reads Too Much
Her question is Do you judge a book by it's cover?
My answer:  While I don't judge the story by it's cover, I have wanted to read a book based on it's cover.  I've seen some covers that are so breathtaking that I wanted to read them before I had any idea what the book was about.  There have also been some covers that if I didn't already know what the book was about, I probably wouldn't have picked it up in the first place.  Once I'm reading the book though, the cover ceases to influence me.  I might still love the cover but if the story isn't any good then the cover becomes just that, a pretty book cover.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the hop.

  8. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I'm the same way, the cover may grab me but if it's a poor story then the most fabulous cover design in the world couldn't help it (well, except that it does remain nice to look at, lol).
