On judging books by their covers

Yay! Salty Ink’s Judge a Book by Its Cover Contest is back! One of the only two contests I participate in when it comes to best of book selection (the other being Goodreads’ best of the year vote) and this is by far my favourite. In part because choosing a book based solely on its cover design and blurb is something that I do all the time. Of course, I usually read the first page too to get a sense of the writing style and if I’ll like it. I used to know someone who read the last page first so they’d know how it would end, but that’s just going too far. A little OCD, even. In any case, it’s here, it’s awesome, and will sate your visual appetite. Also, a talented lady I work with has several of her covers featured, too. This being one of them. I’m still into the whole chalkboard look. I also really liked Animal Husbandry Today’s fail whale cover and The Land of Decoration for its collection of things that reminds me of pressed flowers and the little things I used to collect as a child.
