This or That? #92

For anyone who needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here! :)

By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions or would like to write a guest post about any of the This or That? topics let me know!


This week I want to know…..

If you’re in the bookstore looking for a new book to read, which of these would play the biggest role in whether or not you purchase a book:

Cover ~ Description ~ Author

(must choose just one)


First let me say, I have definitely picked up a book just because the cover was really pretty or interesting. That usually leads me to read the description but, if you know me then you know that I don’t read book descriptions often because most of my books are recommendations.

So that leaves the author. I have go to authors that I will buy no matter what. Anything with Jodi Picoult’s name on it, I will buy. I have never not enjoyed reading one of her books and I know that so why not?

Other authors that I have gotten into the habit of buying are James Patterson and Harlan Coben. They also tend to be popular at a local book sale that I go to so I might as well get them while they’re there.

What about you? Which of these would be the deciding factor in your book purchases? Let me know!

  2. In order: description, cover, and author.

  3. Ahhh how can I choose just one? Description, most likely but the cover will definitely be the initial pick-up factor! 🙈 And of course for favourite authors I don’t care about either haha.

  4. Definitely a description junkie (that’s my vote). I do look at covers too though. And I have a few authors that I always buy from (Ellen Hopkins for example) but I’ve found too many good books by no name people to judge a book by its author.
