Hi guys!
Cover dosent effect my decision to buy a book,coz the most importent is the story inside it.But I dont like paperback colourful covers.I prefer hardcover books,I love them.Big smile
I like Sharpe's series covers,but they are peperback covers.
Reason why I dont like paperback covers is that you have to be extremely careful with them.LOL

The bookcover does not really affect my decision however it does make me look at a book.. It gets my attention.. I think Jenny Cologan covers are quite attractive and make u notice a book! Embarrassed

I would be a hypocrit if i said that the cover of a book does not influence if i get a book or not. I do not do it purposly but an attractive cover is bound to get my attention first and it will probably end up being the one i will get. I guess we all sometimes subliminally do this, but i cant really help it, i dont go around looking for pretty books, they just catch my attention quicker.

the cover of a book, certainly draws my attention to it, but it does not really convince me to buy the same. but the synopsis at the back influences me more about whether i buy it or otherwise!!!
