Book Blogger Hop September 3- 6

     Thank goodness Friday has finally come! I was dying! Now I have a lovely three day weekend for Labor Day. That means plenty of time to finish Mockingjay.  I tried reading it this week but it got in the way of homework (oops!) and I ended up staying up late to finish the lame homework I dismissed to read.  :)  Ah, the life of a book lover...
Thanks to Jen at Crazy-for-Books!Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week:
     Do you judge a books by its cover?
     I know it's horrible, but yes I do. They say not to judge books by their covers. Honestly, how do you decide to pick up a book and examine it otherwise though? I'm usually not going to pick up something that looks horrible or boring, personally. My friends and I have discussed this plenty and it's just the honest truth that most people won't pick up a book that isn't visually appealing.
     Besides this, I like to run my fingers over covers that I like (weird, I know). I like tracing the words and pictures or feeling the different elevated/impressioned parts. It's just nice.
     So do you judge a book by it's cover?

I actually do the exact same thing, with rubbing my fingers over the cover of books I like. When they print the title so that its glossier than the rest of the cover I can't help by keep touching the title.

As an aside, "The dead and the Gone" is currently near the top of my favorite books I have read this year.

My answer to this blog hop quesiton can be found at my blog:

I'm an old follower hopping through. I judge books by their covers too. It seems most people do. But what's the point of a cover if it doesn't draw you in? A cover is not the major deciding factor, but it is a factor!

Have an awesome weekend!
