…It’s Website Wednesday: Judge A Book By Its Cover?

Judge A Book By Its Cover

Can you judge a book by its cover?

I’ll be the first to admit that when looking for a new book to read, the cover ranks second only to recommended by a friend in terms of what I’ll look at first, but does this prejudice actually work? Does a good cover actually predict a good book, and vice versa?

Judgeby.com aims to find out, and presents you with an endless stream of book covers that you must rate. It then matches your rating to the Amazon user’s rating to see how close the two are. I was able to guess 7 out of 10 correctly, which means I either had a good bout of beginners luck, or there’s actually a bit of falsity behind the old saying, so give it a try and see how you do.
