Q:   Does the cover of a book affect whether you are more willing to read it?

  1. That's what happens when I eat a pickle too! Although not the cute face before trying it--I do a pre-pucker. LOL That first excerpt you shared is too funny. :-) I hope you are enjoying A Hand to Hold in Deep Water.

    I went with a yes and no answer for this week's BBHOP question. While a cover may be what makes me take a closer look at a book, it's never the deciding factor in whether I will actually read it.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda! Thank you for hosting!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
