Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings. This week’s question:
If you see a book with the same cover as another, do you feel less inclined or more inclined to read the book?
Less inclined, unfortunately. I know…Don’t judge a book by its cover. But covers are such an important part of the whole business, that, I believe, more attention should be given to it. If there are two different books with the same cover, my first reaction is not good. It puts me off. I am more inclined to pass…Then I might think it over and read the synopsis. But this is my second reaction, which I might have or might not have. This is why I think that, in the book business, first reactions are fundamental and, as I’ve said before, book covers are the first step of the buying process. So, as far as I’m concerned, I’d rather read different books with different covers.
What about you?
