Book Blogger Appreciation Week - TUESDAY


I’m enjoying my visits to the different book blogs. I’m working on letter B today. What amazes me is how many blogs there are and how many I’ve never visited before. I hope you’re taking time to visit some of these blogs. You might find a few to add to your list.

Thanks for visiting my blog, too! I hope you enjoyed your visit. I dropped by one of your other blogs. I love the tutorial on query writing! I think that probably a lot of book bloggers are writers, too! Happy BBAW!

I agree, BBAW has been lots of fun.
I think both the book cover and the blurb make me grab a book.

Thanks for visiting my blog, isn't the BBAW a great way to find new bloggers? I'm having such a good time!

As for book buying, I do admit that sometimes a cover will compel me to pick up a book. But generally I rely of the blurbs. I don't think I have ever bought a book without looking at the description.

The cover makes me pick it up, but the blurb is usually what sells me. Reviews from other bloggers are a big help as well!

This reminds me of when I was still dating. The outside of the man is what appeals to me first; but, I may not care for the person inside later.
A book's cover is what I notice first. If I think the cover is interesting or lovely, I would more readily read the back blurb. Thanks, Cindi
