You can't pick every single book in a store up to read what it's about, you have to judge books by their covers. And if you're talking about people, judgement is an instinctive thing and it can help you. If you see a man in a dark hoodie acting suspicious, you should judge that he might be dangerous and be careful.
Literally or figuratively?
you're not funny you silly fuck
Unfortunately yes. :/ I wish I could just know whether I'd like the book or not based on the cover, but that's not going to happen. I've probably judged a lot of good books, and have since fallen out of reading.
Sometimes I have to, because my school puts their tag over the info at the back of the book.
And I think you would know, Poopie.
