Follow Friday / Blog Hop #6 (Shakes head, yes, I'm pitiful!)

Hey hey! It's Friday and it's time for some fun!

First for everyone that stops by here, I thank you.  These FF and BH take alot of work and time but truly, they are so worth it. It gives each of us a chance to meet new friends and see old friends.

Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?


For me, it is the cover and the title that tempt me to read the blurb.  If the blurb reads great, I'll grab the book.  I remember the first time I saw Harry Potter's book covers, I was like, O_o...not sure if I liked them.  Love the inside but the covers weren't really to my tastes.

Happy Follow Friday!!!

Thanks for stopping by LC's Adventures in Libraryland :)

You know, I was thinking the exact same thing about Harry Potter when I saw this week's FF question-- I really wasn't a fan of the covers, I thought they looked kind of tacky or childish (which makes sense, since the first ones were written for 11-12 year olds) but after I read the books, now I love the covers!

Thanks for following, and hope you have a great weekend :)

Judith Leger said...

That's exactly what I thought too, Lea! Thanks for stopping by, love!!

I understand what ya mean about the covers. I loved the HP ones becaues they were so colorful and bright. The later ones more than the first few, though.

So many books, so little time said...

New follower, if you get a chance to return the favour that would be lovely. http://smbslt.blogspot.com/

I don't usually let the cover put me off but sometimes the title can but I usually read it anyway as sometimes authors dont get a decision with the cover

I love all covers of Harry Potter. But it's not the reason why I read the book. :)

I completely agree with your description. :) (As you might already know!) I was the same way with the first HP. Although of course, I had the Swedish one. Wasn't much better though, except for some silvery on it. ;) I actually read the first book after I'd watched the movie. Have loved every single one since!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm following you back. :) You have a nice blog!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and following! I'm looking forward to reading your blog. I love the background for your blog. It is so very cool looking.

I often don't even look at a cover for a book, and have a bad memory for what the covers of the books I have read look like. Oh well. Its what's inside the covers that counts most isn't it?

I never thought about the H.P covers but I think had my cousins not lent me their books to read I probably wouldn't have.

HI Jen! Thanks for coming by the blog and for the follow! I agree about Harry Potter and then add Twilight to that list too. Neither the blurbs nor the covers were enough to entice me. it took me until last year to give in and buy both series just to see what the fuss was all about. Loved Harry Potter as did my kids, but Twilight was a good study on story building is nothing else, in my opinion.

I hope you have a great weekend!
