Do Judge a Book by its Cover
“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a common saying. But should we really judge books by their cover?
Don’t judge a book by its cover is a saying that normally implies that the outside of a book (or person/activity) isn’t a reflection of what is on the inside. This is true. Just because you like or dislike the cover of a book it doesn’t always mean that you will feel the same about the storyline. But the cover is an important part of the book and it does play a part in the reader’s choice in book.
When you are in the library you can’t look at every single blurb to see what it is about. You can only pick up a few books out of the thousands in the library. The cover has to influences which book you choose. Even if you try not to let the cover influence your choices you will subconsciously judge the book by its cover.
Normally people have a preference in covers. Some people like brightly coloured titles because it usually means that the writing style or the storyline is happy and bright. Some people like the opposite because they are sadder.
Usually, colours are indicative of the writing style, mood and sometimes even storyline of the book. This is because even though the author doesn’t design the cover, they have the final say and they have the main idea which usually includes the colour scheme and idea of the cover.
So we do need to judge books by their covers to narrow down our search in the library and covers are an easy and accurate way of judging books at a glance.
