Follow Friday

It's Friday, which means it is time forFollow Friday hosted by Parajunkee's View.  Feature and Follow is the more proper name for today's meme.  This week's featured blogger is: Lesley at My Keeper Shelf .  Check out her blog. 

Question for the week:  Do you judge a book by its cover?

My answer: Yes! I admit it.  Sometimes.  Having admitted that, I am much more particular in my book choices these days.  I read the front, back, and first few pages before I buy a book, but I will pick up a book just because of its cover.  I've found great books with pretty awful covers and really bad books with beautiful covers -- so I don't think the cover has much to do with the book itself, except that it might make me pick it up in the first place.

Happy Friday!

Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam, a practical, sensible man who doesn’t fear the dark and doesn’t have bad dreams—who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly the couple is faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam’s hardheaded, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed—a promise that could destroy them all.

My Take:
This was an extremely fast read for me.  I started it as soon as it arrived in the mail and then finished it the next night.  There…
