Judge a book by its cover

  • Post a book cover for a book you have read.

  • Judge whether the books other people post are good or not by the cover.

  • Book cover posters respond with whether they thought the book they posted was good or not.

(There is a web game Andrea James posted about last year called Judgey that lets you do the same thing automatically, using Good Reads ratings as a benchmark, if you want to do the impersonal version of this…)

  • 1 not sure this is actually a book
  • 2 not sure there are words in the book
  • 3 can guess why it’s a bestseller, just not for me
  • 4 fun read, would recommend
  • 5 best thing Tom Sharpe ever wrote


That had better be good, because the cover is something else. I’m gonna guess, though, 1.5 out of 5 stars? (I’m not trying to guess the Amazon rating, though, more of what I think I’d think of the book.)
