Over at Booking Through Thursday, the question for the week is “Can you judge a book by its cover?”
5 years ago I would have said not necessarily. I would have said that often bad books could be lurking behind good covers. Just this week I realized that times have changed. The Wee One saved all her money and got herself a Nook Color. I love it and can hardly wait until they decide to open a apps store for more fun, but I digress. Apparently, self publication has become huge with the advent of non-paper publication. However, this has made book browsing painful. The number of children’s books with awful, amateurish, eye searing book covers is overwhelming. Now there might be a good story behind some of these covers but I am not holding my breath.
