In My Mailbox #16 & Sunday Confessions #10

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted every week by The Story Siren. To find out how to participate and the "official" details, check out the IMM page.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you've bought or books that you've gotten at the library.


Brought from the store:

--Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Pre-ordered on Kindle:

--13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (Free with Bonus Material)

Looking forward to begin both of these! 13LBE doesn't even come out on Kindle (with the free/bonus material thing) unti lApril 12th, so I jut pre-ordered.


This meme was started by Marcie @ To Read or Not To Read. She started it as a way to share a little about herself, but to learn about the rest of us as well. She says, "Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate."

This week's question is

"Do you judge a book by its cover?"

This seems to be one of the easiest questions for me to answer to far. I definitely judge books by their covers, by their titles, too, really. When I look at a book's cover, if it grabs my attention (in a good way) I make sure that it is on my TBR list so that I have a chance to learn more about it later. If the cover isn't doing it, I look to the title, or the author. :)

Do you judge books by their covers?

Leave a link to your IMM &/or SC and I will be sure to come by! :)

I like the balance of contemp and fantasy/paranormal/sci-fi/whatever genre ACross the Universe goes under :P
(And I feel guilty about leaving links in the comments, but... here's my IMM.)

I agree, if the title is catchy it provokes my interest too. Thanks for stopping by :D

I have been so interested in Across the Universe, I will have to get it one day

Yes I do judge a book, same as you. If I like the cover Ill pick it up and start flipping through it. Pretty covers are just more fun to have on my shelf :)

Fab reads! I enjoyed 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I'm 2 pages into ATU, but don't know if I'm in the mood for it.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading what you have to say, whether good or bad. (This is not an open invitation to be rude.)

This blog is an award-free zone. I simply don't have the time to pass them on. Thanks for thinking of me, though :).
