The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Does the cover of a book affect whether you are more willing to read it?
The cover of a book doesn’t impact my willingness to read it.
Now, it does impact a few subtle things:
- If I think the cover is 😍, I’ve noticed that I spend a little longer deciding if I want to read it. – give it a more thorough consideration, and
- If the cover doesn’t match common genre aspects, that has become a red flag for me. Like a cover of a thriller that looks like a romcom – kind of cartoonish and cute.
