Judging a book by its cover

I took a break from writing White Destiny and visited a new bookstore nearby in search of inspiration. I headed to the Light Novel section and bought a random book with the nicest cover art without knowing what it is about. Turn out, the book, titled “Bungaku Shoujo” aka “Book Girl”, is quite acclaimed.

After reading its extremely enticing premise on Wikipedia, I posted this on Camp NaNoWriMo’s message board:

My face when I visited the bookstore and the first random book I bought “because the cover looks nice” was an acclaimed novel.

And now, I’m sitting here with that book, feeling like my crap writing has been doing the world a disservice…

True story.
