This Week's Question is:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
My Answer: I have to admit that yes, I do judge a book by its cover. This is especially true if I'm browsing at the library or bookstore. I'll often pick up a book because the cover speaks to me in some way. This gets me in trouble at work because I'll often find a ton of books I want to read while I'm working on other projects in the stacks. And I actually like that most journals don't have pictures of book covers along with their reviews, because it's easier to be objective when I'm only reading the review and can't see all the beautiful covers.
It makes me sad when a wonderful book has a so so cover. When I recommend certain books at the library, I feel that I have to preface the recommendation with a "don't pay attention to the cover, because this book is awesome." Covers are definitely important, a lot of times the teens at my library won't pick up a book with a cover they don't like no matter how many times we recommend it or say how great we think it is.
Some of my recent favorite YA covers include:
Have a great weekend!!
