Judging a Book by its Cover?

Do you feel disappointed when the covers don’t match the story? Have you ever been completely misled by a book cover?

As I wrote in last week’s Monday Musings the book cover doesn’t have much effect on me when I’m deciding whether to buy a book. It has even less effect once I’ve started to read it because I just don’t see the cover. In fact sometimes I’ve hardly looked at the cover and couldn’t say what was on it. I can’t think of an example where I’ve been misled by the cover.

  1. I’m shallow. A cover can *totally* sell me a book. 🙂 I have been misled by covers before, but I can’t remember being disappointed.
