If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?
I always pick up books to read if I like the title. I do not have any books that have fancy covers. If I were to judge my favorite book by its cover I will still read it. It’s not the cover but the title attracted my attention.
Once my daughter bought a book for me, she said it was a good one,I read the title, it was ,”A Long Way Home” I looked at the cover, it was the picture of a little boy.I was curious I felt it might be the story of the boy, may be he was lost. The words A long Way, the picture was of a little Indian boy.
I wasted no time thinking I started reading. It turned out to be one of my favorite books.
If I were to judge my favourite book by its cover, will I still read it? Yes I will,the cover of a book,makes no difference to me.I pick books by the title and not cover. Recently I read Paulo Coelho’s book,’The Alchemist’,I didn’t even look at the cover.Out of curiosity I took out the book again and looked at the cover.The design is nothing out of the ordinary, there is nothing on it that can make me even a little eager to find out what it is about.The title certainly attracted my attention.I started reading the book and did not stop until I was finished.This is the type of book I will read several times.
Another book that caught my attention,was ,’Proof of Heaven’.This one is written by a neurologist.I could not put it down until I read the whole book. I am embarrassed to admit,I didn’t even look at the cover.I read the title and bought the book.What I am trying to say is,’I do not judge a book by its cover.”
