Booking Through Thursday

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but there’s no question that it can make a difference!

What book(s) have your favorite covers? Something that’s perfect for the story, the tone, the colors, the mood…

And did you pick up the book BECAUSE of the cover? Or were you going to read it anyway, and the cover was just serendipitous?

These days I do most of my book shopping on-line so I’m not as influenced by covers as I used to be when shopping in bookstores. Now, I tend to choose the books I buy because of an author I already know or because I’ve read interesting reviews about it or because it’s about a topic I’m interested in. In fact, sometimes I have to buy an interesting book despite the cover.

Covers actually influence me lot more in libraries.
