Book Blogger Hop

It's time to do the Hop! Hosted by Crazy For Books, it's a place to find great book blogs and find out more about the bloggers behind them!

The question for this week is: Do you judge a book by its cover?

I definitely do this. If I'm browsing the book store looking for new books or even reading blogs, then I will definitely look at a book based on its cover. And if I'm not sure about whether or not to read a book I will let the cover help me make that decision. But, if I have heard about a book and know what it's about, then a bad cover won't stop me from picking it up (though I will be disappointed for a few seconds about a bad cover.) I'm not looking for anything fancy or out of this world, just a cover that is pleasing to the eye and that relates to the book.

Well, this is the last weekend before school starts! A time to get organized and as well a time to relax (and read!) I'm a little annoyed right now, there is a great book waiting for me at the library on the hold shelf, and my library is currently closed due to construction elsewhere in the building. They're haven't said when it will re-open so for now I can just read other books while picturing a lonely Last Night at Chateau Marmont sitting on the shelf waiting for me to come rescue it.

Have a good weekend everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. oh how sad that you can't go get your library book (I'm totally serious). I can't believe they haven't let you know when the library will re-open.

    I think most of us do judge books by the covers even though we don't want to admit it. The marketing people sure know this which is why covers get so much attention.

  2. Stopping by via the hop...I feel the same as you do - there's a place and time when book covers come into play as to whether I will read the book.

    Happy Friday (and I hope you get your book soon!)

  3. Stopping by through the blog hop.
    I judge books like you said. Cover first, but doesn't always determine whether I read it or not.
    Happy Friday!!

  6. I do this too. However, a bad cover is not a deal breaker if I'm familiar with the author. I hope you're able to check out your book soon. I'm stopping by from the Hop. Enjoy your weekend.
