top ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

  1. Heck, that is a big topic! Technically most books I own or want are down to the titles or covers, really. It’s your first impression and if it doesn’t grab you, often times you’re not gonna take a look. The exceptions being recommendations and a certain theme you’re looking for, I suppose. But hmm.. I suppose there are books that I’ve bought or wanted solely because the cover was so pretty that it MUST be something I’ll love.

    • Thank you Hannah, great points. I think most of us are visual people, and most covers convey what the book is about, so it all makes sense that we are tempted by covers. If I were an author I would be stressed out thinking of a cover for the book!
