It is a truth universally acknowledged…

that a person who tells you they do not judge a book by its cover is speaking an untruth.  May you be proud or prejudiced on this score let us all speak the truth now.

  1. Mmm…that Folio Society cover, though.

    It’s true, and it’s something I wish I could help writers understand: people WILL judge a book by its cover, because a book is more than just words on paper. It’s an experience, and people who consider themselves serious collectors are looking for something visually appealing.

    • It is also a great one!

      What you say is very accurate. Books are judged by their covers, they are so much more than just words on paper and they are an experience! Thank you for the lovely comment!
