Musing Mondays - Book Covers

This week’s musing asks…

Do you judge a book by its cover?

My answer...

I won't say I judge books by its cover, but I do like looking at pretty covers (which is why I started my weekend cover art meme).

On one hand, I've bought many books simply because I loved the cover, but a bad cover never stopped me from buying a book that was recommended to me. Or even if I'm browsing in a bookstore and I see a bad cover, I'll pick it up to read the back cover blurb out of curiosity. If it appeals to me, I'll still get it regardless of the cover.

I don't let a bad cover stop me from getting a book I'm interested in, but there are times I scratch my head and wonder why they used some of these covers in the first place.

  1. I'm the same way, a pretty cover helps, but bad ones won't keep me from reading the book if I'm interested.

  2. "judge" may be too strong a word, but I think the cover is another factor in whether we pick up a book or pass it over.

  3. I do love a good-looking cover, but I don't judge books by their covers. :)

    that much

  5. I have never bought a book cos of a cover, but a pretty cover has made me pick up a book and then perhaps buy it
