Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:
Do you judge a book by it's cover?

I wouldn't say I actually 'judge' a book by it's cover per se, as in I wouldn't give a review or rating based on a cover, and a bad cover wouldn't make me dislike a book. However, when I'm in a book store or library I'm much more likely to choose a book based on it's cover. A book with a bad or even dull cover isn't likely to inspire me to pick it up and read the blurb unless it's an author or series I already know. It also works in that I've brought books with pretty covers only to be disappointed by the story *cough*Twilight*cough*

So, to me book covers are important for that first initial impression to attract my attention (I'm shallow and superficial that way) but after that they're not so much of a big thing.
