I absolutely do judge books by their cover. I buy novels for the image on the front. Even better if it has raised lettering, flocking or a lovely title font. I imagine I'll like what's on the inside as much I do the outside. Magazines are a different story altogether. If I'm a loyal follower, like I am to so many, I buy it no matter what the cover. But sometimes there are covers alone that can suck me in and make me add another monthly mag to my already heaving mag towers. These covers have done just that. Irresistible.
