Judging a book by it’s cover

If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?

Long answer short, yes.

Now I’ll stick to me reading my favourite books based on their covers rather than justifying the don’t judge a book by it’s cover which is a much common topic of discussion, and honestly, who is stupid enough to not know that by now, and if so (since the world is filled with idiots in a manner of speaking) how many actually follow it?

I have many favourite books. Many of them include graphic novels and comics which have very interesting covers quite evidently, and the others are also intriguing. Many bestsellers have different variations based on the region, language and other factors like over time too and it’s cool to see other interpretations of the same book (cover). So not much of a thoughtful one for me. Besides, in today’s with the much available resources, abundant no. of talented artists, creativity and imagination, a lame or bad cover is just a stupid excuse.
