Judging Books by Their Covers

This is pretty adorable: a six year old guesses what classic novels are about based on their covers. (per babble.com)

“I think this is about a gigantic robot who goes on fire and he doesn’t like himself. It has a sad ending. It looks like a book for teens. The title means fire, a really really really big fire since the number is 451, that would mean it was really hot. So the robot must get really hot. Maybe that is why he is so sad.”

try not to judge books by their covers but visuals are so important that I can’t help it at times. And if I see a  cover featuring a half naked dude being clawed at by half naked woman? I walk away. It’s just not my thing.
