Book Blogger Hop September 3-6

Happy Labor Day Weekend!  Way back when I was just a school girl, we were thinking about the first day of school Labor Day weekend--now school begins in August, and the crisp days of September are actually a little hot and melty.  But Labor Day still feels like the beginning of something new.  For Book Blog Hoppers, welcome and thanks for stopping by.

This week's question is:  do you judge a book by its cover.

Of course I judge a book by its cover.  Good cover art seduces the reader.  Book designers are telling the reader what kind of book they will find between the covers--they tell us with the size and shape of the book, the colors, texture, design, cover art and blurbs.  And sometimes they lie.  But I will definitely be tempted to pick up a book based on the cover design, and I say this without shame!

Blog hoppers, leave a comment and I will return your visit.

I hate to admit it, but I'm such a book cover person. If the artwork on the front looks cheesy, I just won't pick it up!

I just love your header...typing instructor that I am. :)

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.

I'm with you on this one! A very bad cover will make me just want to skip a book; however, an extremely good cover will at least make me pick it up and read the synopsis!

Thanks for stopping by! Sorry I'm so late getting over here! New follower, too!
