Book Blogger Hop

02 Sep

Every week, Jenn over at Crazy for Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop, with the intention of connecting with other blogs and giving bloggers the opportunity to network with each other.  The Hop lasts from Monday to Friday and bloggers use the Mr. Linky at Crazy for Books to post up and to hop around to other blogs.

Each blogger answers a specific question each week and the chosen question this week is:

Do you judge a book by its cover?

I am not ashamed to admit that I do judge books by their cover.  I remember when I worked at the library and so often, the cover of a book passing through the circulation desk would catch my eye and I would put it on my list or take a few minutes and sit down and see what it was about.  To this day, I do the same thing.  I find it interesting to know that most authors do not have a say in what their cover looks like.  I can’t imagine how frustrating this must be as a cover can very well stunt the sale of a book and the interest developed in a certain title.

Thanks for your support, my faithful readers, and thanks to newcomers for taking the time to hop by!

    Hi🙂 You know I didn’t know that. I’ve always thought authors designed the covers or at least gave direction to what it looked like. I agree, how frustrating. Hope you enjoy your weekend!!
    Hope you Hop by my site

    Hopping through. I remember Stephenie Meyer saying she didn’t like the cover for New Moon (I think it was that one). It’s interesting that the Twilight covers are much more subdued than many other YA books. I wonder why that is.

    Stopping in from the hop! Hope you are having a great weekend! I’m an author, and I have worked with both kinds of publishing houses. I much prefer to have a little bit of creative control over my book versus no say at all.
    Smiles!

    First-time visitor…love your header…simply lovely.

    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.
