Booking Through Thursday - 24/6/2010



"Do you read book reviews? Do you let them change your mind about reading/not reading a particular book?"

My answer:
Yes. Being a bookaholic, I am usually tempted to buy whatever looks like in the bookstore. To hold myself back, I normally jot down the title and its author.


When the book lingers in my mind, I will checkout its reviews; normally from more than 5 readers. If it is good, I'll give it a shot. Else, I'll drop it from me list. ;)

I read the reviews especially if it is a new author.

Great answer, 5 reviews is a good amount. My BTT is at The Crowded Leaf.

I think five negative or five positive reviews might actually be a good way to gauge a good read from a bad one!
