Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover

don't judge a book by its cover

People always say, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” but isn’t that exactly what we should do? Imagine you’re in your local bookstore, perusing the aisles for a quality read. You aren’t sure exactly what you’re looking for, but there are hundreds—even thousands—of books in front of you, each one eager to share its story with you.

Do you really have so much extra time on your hands that you’re able to read a few pages from all of the books on the shelf before making your decision? Is there nothing better you could be doing? Like perhaps reading one of those books or heading over to the café section of the bookstore, maybe chatting with the cute barista you noticed when you first walked in?

Since you probably have better things to do than read the summaries of hundreds of books, you might want to save yourself a little time and judge the books by their covers.



  1. So true. I never liked this expression! The way a book presents itself will ultimately decide if you buy it or not. If you want to go even further than than that, you could also think about the back cover. If you are only reading the backcover and not the first, let’s say, chapter before you buy it, you are also being superficial and shallow! There is no way getting around it
    Fun read!
