Book Blogger Hop: September 3-6, 2010

Do you judge a book by its cover?

(This week’s question comes from: Sarah @ SarahReadsTooMuch)

I hate to admit it, but I do judge books by the covers sometimes. It’s not so much about what I think about the book covers. But I do get a little embarrassed to be seen reading a book. I know it’s terrible to care what others think, but I do view some people differently when I see what they read so I guess others might do that to me, too.

Plus, a book cover that is eye appealing will often draw my attention and I will ignore the more average looking covers. Again, not something I’m proud of.

Recently, I have added a sort of cover review to my overall book review when I finish reading, too!

Actually, I have two rants about a book cover that is coming out in January 2011: you can view these posts by clicking here and here. (Essentially, a book in a series I follow is going to look entirely too romance-y than it is historical fiction-y, which is really what it is.)

    Hi, Kristie. I think we’re all guilty of judging a book by its cover! You made a good point that I didn’t think about: other people seeing what you’re reading and vice versa. My post talks about reviews where I’ve mentioned the covers too. I’m going to read yours. Have a great weekend.

  2. Hi 🙂 It’s funny you mention about others seeing you read. I work out everyday and while I’m there, I take a book and read. I’m a huge reader of romance so two guesses what the covers look like. No joke, I will put my book face down and at the last possible second flip it over, open it and hide the cover. One day a guy was walking beside me and asked me what I was reading. Without thinking, I showed him the cover and DIED. Yep semi naked hot guy on the cover. So I get what you were saying. Hope you enjoy your weekend and I’ll be back to read more.

    Hi visiting from the HOP! The cover stories here are making me laugh. My boss threw away one book that our book club read because she was embarrassed by the cover – and these are a bunch of literary ladies, so they must have all hated the cover!

    I would love for you to say Happy Birthday to my daughter who just started a blog – today on her birthday…
    Outpourings Of A Soul.

    I hope you will have time to visit one or both of my blogs: LibrarysCat and Never Forget !!

    Have a great weekend!
