The poll is closed and twenty-nine people answered the question: How important is a book cover in helping you decide your book purchases?
Five said it's EXCEPTIONALLY important.
Thirteen say the cover is SOMEWHAT important.
Two state a cover is NOT AT ALL important to them.
Seven are more interest in the BACK BLURB.
and two are more impressed by the FAMILIARITY OF THE AUTHOR.
So, although the votes don't compare to the millions who call in for American Idol, it gives you a little insight into how readers decide what's important when they select a book.
So, for those of you who believe the cover is somewhat or exceptionally important...here's my latest. I like it. It would make me pick it up. *lol*
