  Billy's Answer

An appealing cover will always grab my attention first. If I like it, I'll read the synopsis. If the plot sounds intriguing, then there's a good chance I will buy it.

  1. That's the same order for me! After all, that is what covers are designed to do, to catch your eye. I hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for hosting, as always :)

  2. A good cover can catch my eye but I do rely on the synopsis as the final decision maker.

    Here's my BBH

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I only read e-books on a kindle paperwhite, so book covers are mainly a black & white icon. Blurb is definitely the most important thing for me.

  4. I do the same, Billy.

    The cover draws me in, and then I read what it is about.

  5. If I'm browsing for books, a cover can sometimes get my attention, but only long enough to draw me to the synopsis - I won't buy a book just for the cover

  6. I'm the same way - the cover catches my attention leading me to read the synopsis.
