  5. Yes, I surely do judge a book by the cover. Not always but more often then not. I'm known for not reading synopsis so if your cover doesn't show me what I want to know or if someone doesn't recommend it... chances are I'm reading someone else's book.

    Please do stop by for a crumpet, find out about a new MeMe & to check out my newest giveaway :)

  17. Hi Lesley, I'm a new follower of the FF hop. Congrats on being featured this week! Your site is lovely.

    I do judge a book by it's cover. On the other hand, I will read something that someone recommends or if I catch a blurb that interests me. But I'm totally a visual victim.

  32. Hi Lesley,

    New follower here. Major congrats on getting chosen to be the featured blog this week!

    For me, it is the cover and the title that tempt me to read the blurb. If the blurb reads great, I'll grab the book. I remember the first time I saw Harry Potter's book covers, I was like, O_o...not sure if I liked them. Love the inside but the covers weren't really to my tastes.

    You can check out my website www.judithleger.weebly.com and my blog, www.judithleger.blogspot.com to see what kind of books I write.

    I have two other pen names,
    Young Adult - L.J.Leger - www.ljleger.weebly.com

  47. Congratulations Lesley! :D And thanks for letting me know it even existed. So much fun! There sure are a lot of Book Bloggers out there!

    I also tend to judge books by their covers, they give the first impression and makes me take a closer look. Though I'd never buy a pretty cover with a story that doesn't seem like it would be for me!

  61. 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!?
