You know what? I do judge a book by its cover. An interesting looking cover will certainly make me pick a book up, faster than I would its boring covered cousin. Then, I read the blurb at the back and the reviews to get an idea of what it’s about. That’s when I take a decision whether it’s something I would like to read. Sometimes I’m right about my choice and sometimes I’m wrong. Of course, the final proof of a book is that it should either get me emotionally involved or intellectually stimulated.
It makes me think of how I make friends – a pleasing and friendly personality does attract me to people. But like a good book, the proof is in the relationship – does it keep me emotionally involved in a positive way and does it stimulate me to grow.
