Time for the Friday Hop, hosted by Crazy for Books. This week over at the Book Blogger Hop, a bookish meme designed to get book bloggers out on the 'net and checking out other blogs, Sarah wants to know:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
Sometimes. If I'm just browsing at the bookstore or the library (without my list of "must finds"), I'll let covers influence me. But--if the title has really grabbed me before the cover turned me off--I'll start reading the back of the book and inside blurbs to see if they sway me one way of the other. If I'm still not sure, I scan the first page or so. If I'm still not sure or the cover reaction gets confirmed, then it stays on the shelf. It's rare that I'll let a cover turn me off of a book that's been on my TBR/"mustfind" lists.
