Follow Friday

Every Friday Parajunkee host Follow Friday, this is your chance to meet new friends and visit old ones. :)
This is your chance to learn a little bit more about your favorite/new bloggers.

Today's question is:
Do you judge a book by it's cover?
I'm going to have to say guilty.  I know it's terrible, but if I'm wondering around a book store looking for a book to purchase with no list it's usually the cover that draws me in. Once I read the blurb that determines whether I actually buy the book or not. But, if I've heard about a certain book or have had a lot of recommendations to check a certain book out then the cover doesn't matter.
So do you judge a book by it's cover? Leave a link to your site and i'll check it out. Happy Friday! :)


  1. Just stopping by for the hop. I pick out books with pretty covers also.

  2. Oh I'm the same way! If I don't have a book in mind when shopping, the cover is what will draw me in. I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  3. Thanks for stopping by myblog. I am the same way. If I just browsing at a bookstore the cover is what makes me pick up the book to read the synopsis/blurb.

    Happy Friday!

  4. Stopping by for the blog hop- I’m pretty much the same as you when it comes to book covers…. I’m already a follower of yours…

  5. I completely agree with your answer! It's like that for me as wel.

    My FF can be found here!

  6. Hi Neri thank you so much for stopping by my blog via this weeks Follow me Friday feature. I'm now your newest follower, your blog is fab!


  7. I don't just books by their covers. I'm weird I guess.

    Love your blog. Following back.

  8. I don't think it's a matter of guilt - we all do it. I think all of us pick up a book with a pretty cover but most people read the blurb and look at reviews too.

  9. Returning the favour, thank you this is my first Follow Friday :D

  10. 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!?
