New Find: "Book by its Cover" Tumblr

You know how we're not supposed to judge books by their  cover, but we all do anyway? We assume a genre, read the blurb and try to figure out how the cover syncs up and sometimes we read way to far into it and try to put the story together before turning the first page. And don't bother lying, we've all done it.

I know a lot of you may not follow on Tumblr, so I thought I would share my latest find here because it's too fun. I recently happened upon a fabulous new Tumblr that's doing it publicly and I love it!

The blogger, who has chosen to remain anonymous as far as I can tell, has laid out a set of rules for how books are chosen and reviewed. The best part is it's all done is a  good-natured, non-malicious way. There's even a disclaimer that outright states opinions found on the Tumblr site aren't a reflection of the story or the author's writing.

You should definitely check it out!

  1. It's interesting the way that the author criticizes the covers, I think he may have a graphic design background ! It will be interesting to see how this goes.
