My father told me when I was young that there are many situations when you should judge a book by it’s cover. Like if someone wears a shirt saying “I hate Muslims” or something, judge them. They chose their own cover.
When the artwork is clearly a stock image
When it’s a how-to book about designing covers.
When it’s cover is made of red flags
Modern writers put A LOT of effort into their cover.
I just read an article about this recently. There’s all sorts of psychological subtleties they use to say things they want you to know about their book.
They’re really into it… like the directions birds are flying and shid mean different things. The shape of the clouds. Every thing you see on a cover is there for a purpose. (Well, for the authors into that)
It’s pretty interesting
When it’s a science fiction book and the cover art is fucking awesome
When it’s a picture book
When they wear number 99
Book cover is not a blank page, it’s filled with information placed by the writer for the reader. Read and judge the cover but keep it by yourself until it proven otherwise.
When it has an *awesome* pic of Fabio in a torn vest, with lightning in the background, and the title includes the word “Fear”.
You can be sure of a quality literary experience.
TSA lines. The amateurs that are going to slow the line for everyone have a very distinctive look about them.
Anyone who obviously copies celebrities is absolute scum and absolutely enjoys hurting people and/or is the worst Karen you’ll ever meet. ✂️👔
When the cover features a hunky dude with his shirt off.
If it’s a cooking book
Books. That’s why covers exist
Always. The idea that you shouldn’t is bullshit. You absolutely can and should judge books by their covers. If Fabio is kissing a well-endowed woman in a ripped bodice you’re not about to read an action packed political thriller, ya dig? The way people choose to present themselves says a lot about them and it’s absolutely fair to make judgments based on that. If you’re wearing a MAGA hat that does mean you’re a racist asshole. It does. If you’re wearing a shirt with a swastika on it and you have a shaved head and are openly carrying a gun you are a neo nazi. That’s just what you are. That’s the truth.
Judge the cover. Judge it all you want. That’s why the cover is there. Go ahead and judge
“Chuck’s Dinosaur Tinglers: Volume 1”
The cover is about as perfect as the title.
How they act when dealing with strangers. That is usually isnt a cover just who they are since dont have to put up a front/cover due to social or horny norms.
Big penis BIG PENIS BIG BALLS BIG DICK…
one more thing…
When the book is so badly damaged that it can’t be physically read.
If someone’s outfit also blend with the atmosphere he/she’s in.
When the cover is on big red flag
When the author is one you don’t care for.
When it’s written by a women. Women always make lackluster books
When it’s cover is a MAGA hat.
