Can You Judge a Book by Its Cover


You all know the saying, don’t judge a book by its cover, bit in all honesty, do you take that to heart?

You’re in your favorite book store and you are looking at the table of bargain books. There are several to choose from. How do you make that choice? For me, I choose based on the cover. If it looks inviting, I pick up the book and flip it over to read the back.

If the cover is unappealing I keep looking until I find something that catches my eye.

Joan Hall at AIW Press discusses why the  cover is so important.
