Yeah mostly. But if I heard it's a great book like The Hunger Games, I'll buy it. I hate the cover of that book but I keep hearing about how great it is.
I hate the cover of Hunger Games too. It's very plain and boring thats why I'd never bought it but then Stephenie Meyer recommended it and I bought and read it. Good book. I do judge books by the covers but I also read the back or slip to see if I'm interested. A book has to have a great cover lol.

Melissa Walker is a great YA author (and blogger) and she does this great feature on her blog, Cover Stories, about how book covers come to be. Authors write stories about the different processes they go through (or don't go through) before their books goes to the shelves in their final "clothes". It's really interesting to see alternative covers of books you know and to hear about how publishers decide on the final outcome.
Here's the link:

Hmmm, that sound really cool. Might have to check that out, I someday want to design book covers. Lol.
That is a major part of my decision to pick up a book i don't know about and read the description. I usually always read the description to see if it sounds good but the covers are usually what attracts me. Lol.

A pretty or striking cover definitely hooks me! The most important thing about a cover, though, (which is kind of dumb) is that I won't get weird looks reading it in public. It's why I don't buy very much manga - regardless of the content, the cover is usually one of the female characters in some state of undress.
