Friday Book Blogger Hop
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books. It is now hosted by Billy @Coffee Addicted Writings. 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 your own blog.
Are you more likely to choose to read a book based on the synopsis, or the cover?
by Julie @ JadeSky
An attractive cover has made me pick books up on many occasions. However I have never purchased one based on cover alone – author and blurb are the main factors in my book buying decisions.
For the last six years I’ve exclusively read e-books and the covers of those really do NOT have the same draw power as those of a physical book. This has meant that blurb has become even more important when purchasing books – particularly since my kindle displays them as a rather boring black and white image! As you can imagine, I don’t spend a lot of time looking at them.
Book or Blurb – what’s your choice?
