Book Blogger Hop (10) + Follow Friday

Another Friday, Another Hop.


About the Hop:


Book Blogger Hop is a wonderful opportunity for readers and bloggers to make new friends and to discover blogs of their interest and passion. Through this meme, I've met friendly bloggers who share interesting insights and ideas with me.

Join the Hop!
 
This week's question: Do you judge a book by its cover?
 
When it comes to book judging, I have three steps. First, I look at the cover and yes, judge by the cover. Why? In my opinion, the cover should summarize what the story is with images. If the images aren't that good or if they don't have that vibe that I'm looking for, it's most likely not gonna attract me. Second, to give books the fairness that they deserve, I read the book description. If it intrigues me or not, I judge by that. Third, I read reviews of that book. I'm very interested to know what my fellow bloggers think of a book before buying it.
 
Yes, I judge initially but I don't base my final decision on that initial judgement. Because that would simply be unfair.
 
What about you?

Rachel asks, What is your favorite brick and mortar bookstore?


Easy. It's a bookstore called Fullybooked. They have a branch in a mall near my university, so I visit quite often. They are the most updated bookstore here in my country.

  13. I'm just hopping back. Thanks so much for hopping by my blog and following me! I really appreciate it.

    We seem to have similar ways of buying books. A cover largely effects whether I'll pick the book up but isn't the deciding factor for me.

    Have an awesome weekend and I'm now your follower!
