Book Blogger Hop (2)

Book Blogger Hop
ABOUT THE HOP (hosted at Crazy for Books):
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!

This week's question comes from:
Sarah @ SarahReadsTooMuch
 
Do you judge a book by its cover?
To be honest, yes I do. If the cover catches my eye, especially with with cool graphics (e.g. like this or this), I'm sure to pick it up. But books with girls in bikinis (summer/beach type books) or with a couple together kissing make me feel awkward, so I won't pick it up (people begin wondering what you're reading...) Now, I know I'll sound really shallow, but a while ago, if the cover of the book is of a much older edition, I wouldn't pick it up. However, now I'm 'experimenting' in my reading and read the blurb before deciding yay or nay because of a book's cover.

If you're visiting my corner of the Interwebz through the Book Blogger Hop, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a salutation in the comments :)

  3. I'm a new follower from the hop, and I really like your site. Looking forward to seeing more of it!

    I love books with pretty covers as well. I've never seen that edition of Along For the Ride. I like the US version, but that one is adorable as well.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hopping by from the Book Blogger Hop! I'm also a new follower. I agree with what you said about cover content in relation to what people think of you. Sometimes I feel really shy about carrying certain books around. For instance, Pretty Little Liars is an amazing series that's totally NOT chick lit, but the covers make them seem like they are, with the Barbie doll-type things on them.

    That Sarah Dessen cover is really cool. I would definitely want to read that based on the cover!

    Have a great weekend :)

  6. Hey! I'm a new follower from the blog hop :)

    I definitely judge books by their covers, but it's not the deciding factor for me.

  10. First-time visitor.

    I do pick up a book because of its cover...not necessarily buy it, but it does make me pick it up and check it out.

    Hopping by.
