I'm not 12 and I read mostly classics and books appreciated by the tradition from respected authors, so covers don't matter at all.

There is usually useful information on the back and I can't read every book so yes

Does the appearance of a book cover persuade or dissuade you from reading the book in question?
Or are you more likely to read a book if the cover looks interesting?
Do you think the blurb on the back of the book also makes a difference?
2) No, but I prefer it if the cover is plain, or vaguely interesting.
3) I always read the blurb before I make my decision. If the blurb is bad, I won't read it. The order I go is:
- Is the book about something I would be interested in? Check the title.
- If title is good, read the blurb.
- If blurb is good, get the book.

I wont read the blurb of every single book I come across, the cover gives an idea of what the book will be like so if i like the cover then ill read the blurb

I usually read the blurbs of a few books then decide which interests me most, if I'm still unsure I choose the ones with best cover
