We’ve all heard that wonderful saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” But with marketing these days cover designers know it’s more important than ever to get a gorgeous book cover. In fact, Goodreads even has a Top Book Covers chart that people can use to vote for their favorites. For self-publishers like me this means we have to be on the top of our game to deign our own book cover. But what about the readers? Are they really that influenced by book covers? Comment below and tell me what you think!

Have you ever bought a book based on its cover?
