Book Blogger Hop (9) & Follow Friday (1)

Book Blogger Hop

Once again I am taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Jennifer of Crazy-for-Books. Every week I get to meet all these lovely new bloggers and make tons of new friends.



I have judged a book by its cover so many times, it's somewhat ridiculous. When I'm at the bookstore the cover of a book is the first things that's going to attract my attention. If the cover's plain and boring I often won't bother looking that much further into the book. But if the cover is beautiful, exciting and wonderful then there is a much larger chance I'll look at the book. I'm sure there are plenty of books I've missed out on because I stopped at the cover, but I've also found some many great ones the same way. It's sometimes just a reflex to judge a book by its cover, there's not much I can do about it!

This week I've decided to also take part in Parajunkee's View's Follow my Book Blog Friday meme. Depending on how it goes maybe I'll start taking part in this meme on a weekly basis as well. So here's how this one works:

1. Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host { } and any one else you want to follow on the list
2. Follow our Featured Bloggers -
3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing.
4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments
5. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can
6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
8. If your new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

  6. I'm an old follower hopping through. I feel the exact same way you do. The point of the cover it to attract and it's hard to look at a book with a bland cover. Have an awesome weekend!

    I completely agree with you on the covers. If I'm at the library or bookstore and pull out a book and it has an awful cover, I just kind of slide it back on the shelf as if I never looked at it ;)
