Yes, but what if you're just browsing? You see two books that you've never heard of, one with a crappy cover one with an excellent one, which do you choose? What is it that first makes you pick a book up off the shelf?Originally posted by Thekherham
A book may have the best cover in the world, but if the story inside doesn't appeal to me, then forget it.
And, if the story inside is humdrum or mediocre and the cover is a really good one, done by a great artist, then forget it.
With me, story comes first, art comes second.
