Or I haven't finished a book yet so I'm thinking on the spot.
But I did a discussion post once a while ago and it was pretty fun so I thought I'd try another one to see how successful it is. I'm also hoping that I haven't stolen someones meme by accident.
So today's discussion point is: Book Covers and Book Titles
How much does a book cover affect the likelihood of you picking up a book?
I judge a book a lot by its cover. Yeah I know it's bad. But if a cover has something original and interesting I'll pick it up and wonder what it's about. If it's unoriginal, like a flower, I won't pick up the book. The only exceptions to this are if another blogger has blogged about/recommended a book. But I generally get my initial impression about a book from its cover. It's the first thing I see.
Question number two, rather unoriginally named:
How much does a book title affect the likelihood of you picking up a book?
Book titles don't have a large significance to me. If a book has a really cool name, I think cool. But I wouldn't turn down a book because of a name, unless it was something really awful like "hfkahfifhafkajhf". And even then I'd be kind of intrigued. Sometimes an interesting title will stand out to me and I'll pick up a book to see what it's about, but it's no guarantee that I'll even finish reading the blurb.
So what do YOU think?
I'm also going to apologise in advance. I'm too tired to spell check. I've just worked out that blogger has a spell check. Wow. Apparently, unoriginally isn't a word. Is spellchecking lying?
