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.
Are you more likely to choose to read a book based on the synopsis, or the cover?
(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
I am more likely to notice a book because of its cover, and then I read the description. If the description/genre matches the cover, then I will read it. I learned to beware of books whose cover doesn’t reflect the genre. The books I’ve been most disappointed by are those that don’t match up. Of course, there are exceptions to that rule. So, I choose to read a book based on both the cover and the description equally.
