Judging the book by its cover ! Title actually

Do you judge a book by its cover? I mean the cover design.
I do.
In fact, I read the title from the spine of the book and then if it interests me, I pick up the book, have a glance at the front cover for art work etc and immediately flip the book and read the back cover which gives a snapshot of the books storyline. If it interests me, I take it. If it doesn't, I leave it.

Reminds me of a time in my school days when I would judge the book by the cover and the title alone :) That's how I picked up my first of Sherlock Holmes (The Hound of Baskerville) as well the 3 investigator series.

The first thing that struck me about the Three Investigators series was the title of the books and the cover art graphics. They had extremely interesting titles and they were the primary reason why I picked up those books in the first place. A bit of googling gave me a list of all the 3I titles. I am putting down the entire list … highlighting (bold font) the ones I find most interesting. :)
