It's Time to Join the Hop

Friday is a great day to make new blogging friends. You can participate in the Book Blogger Hop which is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. Here is her explanation:
In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word!  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!  It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!  So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!


The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun!  This is a weekly event!  And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added!  We get over 300 links every week!! 
Jen also asks a question each week. This week her question is: 


Do you judge a book by its cover?


My answer is that I never used to. I chose books based on the blurb on the back or on the author's name. Since I have been blogging I have become much more conscious of the cover of the book. Also, I work with a person at my library who is much more visual than I am and who does talk about book covers. That has raised my awareness of covers in general. 


I will admit that I have chosen some books recently mainly because I loved the cover. This has had some mixed results. I have read a few books lately where the beautiful cover was the best part of the book.

  1. Stopping by via the hop...I think it depends - there's a place and time when book covers come into play as to if I will read the book.

    Happy Friday!

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following me. I really appreciate it!

    While I tend to gravitate towards books with awesome covers, I still pick up books with covers I'm not wildly excited about. It just takes me a little longer to get to those books in stores. I have to agree with you though, a good story and characters trumps a great cover any day.

    Have an awesome weekend and I'm a new follower!
