Have you ever judged a book by its cover and turned out right?

Yeah, for me it was "The Fourth Realm" by John Twelve Hawks I noticed this book because of its cover and decided to buy it. And I was totally satisfied with it! Very interesting and unique thing, it's still one of my favourites

I am guilty of picking up a few books while browsing because the cover interested me. I am usually reminded real quick, that this is not smart, but it has worked in my favor a few times.

YES! In fact, if a cover doesn't grip me at a glance, I tend not to pick it up.

I've found allot of great stories, because of an items cover.

The same can be said about video games.

All in all, one shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, yet it's probably human nature to do just that.

Oftentimes, even with antiques. I guess I'm just good at it. I've scored very nice pieces, ranging from a Prov Saxe E.S. Germany vase dated from 1902 to 1938 (converted to a lamp), to a GHF sterling carving set dated in the 1920s. I had to take the lamp apart to find the stamp, so I had no idea what I had when I initially nabbed it.

By luck, all the time... usually when its an author I enjoy reading.

Yep. I saw this series entitled Ninja Blood in my local library and thought 'this looks really cool' , and it was!

Yes, the 'Children of Hurin' by Tolkien.
The worse was when I just skimmed the cover, it turned out to be a fantasy love novel for teenagers. I really should have paid attention to the fact the tittle was pink.

I thought this was my wife's recipe book: boy was I wrong.

Yep. One time saw a book in the library that had a stereotypical teen romance/drama cover and thought "wow, this looks stupid." Surprise, it was.
