Pull on your Bobby Socks ... its time for the Book Blogger Hop!

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly event hosted by Crazy For Books!

Book Blogger Hop

"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!"  This is my first week to particpate in the Book Hop and I am exctited about it!

This week's question is:

Do you judge a book by its cover?

I try not too ... but YES I do.  When I am browsing the bookstore or the library for something to read it is the cover that attracts my attention first.  Then, of course, I read the summary on the back (or inside flap!) and decide from there if I am really interested.  Some books have awesome covers but don't interest me.. and some book have lame covers but are awesome.  So you have to be careful not to judge a book -too- much by it's cover.  There are some real hidden jems out there!   Reminds me of Disney's Alladin... a diamond in the rough. lol.

I am the same way, pretty covers make me want to take a look. It's a bad habit since there are some many bad covers that turn out to be great reads.

I am hopping in for the blog hop. I'm a follower, too!

I judge books by their covers too, at least at first. Reading reviews helps me find gems that I would have missed because I didn't like the covers.

If you have time, drop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe

Here through the blog hop....had to click because my nickname from childhood is Scoot :)

I'll be subscribing...we have similar taste! Not many people review fantasy books, it seems like.

Happy friday!

It's hard not to be drawn to some covers. I know they affect my browsing when I'm at the store. Just hopping by!
