How do you choose a book?

By: | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 0

Why do some books fly off the shelves while others sit and gather dust? It’s all about the cover. The book cover plays a prominent role in our decision to borrow a book.   A cover or jacket’s ability to catch our eye and draw us in can often make or break a book’s success.  We use book covers to determine the worth of a book, the kind of story that might be told within, and whether or not we should take it seriously and borrow the book from the […]
