Q: Would you or do you choose a book solely on the cover?

  8. YES!!! The Friday 56 book? I want to check that out!
    You are so right about covers!! There are books I would not have read, simply because the cover looked boring. Then, there were books that had me salivating. Result? An unfinished book because of an undeveloped story.
