Looks good, sounds good, or something else?
« on: October 16, 2020, 12:28:27 am »
This may sound like a weird question - I came across it some time ago and now it bugs me whenever I find myself doing things unconsciously.

For example, do you say, "That book LOOKS good" or "That book SOUNDS good" when you come across a review or a book blurb that draws your attention? I mean, I don't actually buy a book because the cover looks good (although that may draw me to it in the first place). And it's not as if the title "sounds" good - I'm not listening to it on Audible, I'm reading about it.

I feel like there should be an additional sense that describes our connection to a book, something that more accurately describes the experience we're describing when we say it looks or sounds good.

Any suggestions?
