Do judge a book by its cover

In this quiz, look at a book cover design and see if you can guess the book's rating on Amazon. (Via SwissMiss.) And if you're enthralled by book covers, check out the Book Design Review blog.

Well, good to see the old comment form back!

I shall pass on the time wasting right now. I think I have better things to do. (Aren't you proud of me?) ;-)

Hope you're having a great time!

Missing you,
Mum

The quiz was disappointing when you figured out all of the books had either four or five stars. Out of the 23 books I judged only one had three stars and nothing was lower.

I know it's a terrible thing to do (especially since I worked in publishing), but I always judge books I've never heard of by their covers!

I did terribly. Why is everything practically rated 4 or 5 stars? Yeesh.

I definitely learned this recently when I bought a book, by a friend's reference, and noticed later that i'd never bought it only by looking at the cover... it was a great book.

Are you kidding? Nice advertisement for amazon! (Not you, just that "quiz.")
