Do You Judge A Book By Its Cover?

the-hobbit-book-coverSince we’re on the topic of books (see here and here), I couldn’t help but ask: Do you judge books by their covers?

Do you get completely lost in other worlds while watching a movie or reading a book? Have you wondered what the house of Slytherin might smell like as Harry and Ron sneak in to spy on Malfoy?
