A blessed Sunday morning to you, my dear reading friends 🙂 Today on the Book Club, I want to discuss a question that Laura Frantz asked during her panel for readers during the CFRR. I had the privilege of joining my dear friends Annie & Bonnie as well as a new reader friend Patti to answer questions that Laura had gleaned from various authors. What fun!! Such an honor!
I think in this photo Bonnie was answering Ruth Logan Herne’s all-important question about chocolate 😉
I just love Laura Frantz!
Anyway… one of the questions Laura asked was “What’s the biggest deciding factor for you when picking up a book from an unknown-to-you author?” For me, it’s all about the cover. The front cover is the first thing that grabs my attention. If it catches my eye, I’ll pick up the book. Then, if the back cover blurb intrigues me, that book is most likely going on my TBR
list continent. The exception to this is if the book is recommended to me by a friend whose opinion I trust. Then, I’ll read it even if the cover or the blurb doesn’t really grab me.
Ok, now it’s your turn. What’s the biggest deciding factor for YOU when picking up a book from an unknown-to-you author?
