This week’s question comes from Julie, who asks:While acknowledging that we can’t judge books by their covers, how much does the design of a book affect your reading enjoyment? Hardcover vs. softcover? Trade paperback vs. mass market paperback? Font? Illustrations? Etc.?
I admit that the cover of a book will induce me to read it. I wouldn't say it affects my enjoyment of the book. If the cover doesn't live up to what I think it represents then I feel let down, yet it doesn't necessarily change how I enjoyed the book.
Yet, I can't think of any titles that the covers really influenced me or that let me down.
