Book Reviews? (BBT)

Haven't done this in awhile--so busy with life and all those other wonderful things that come with it, lolz. But here we go! I just had to answer this one. ^_^

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

Yes! I have a few specific folks with similar tastes in reading to my own, such as Stormi, over at her blog, Books, Movies, Reviews and More! which cover interesting titles and an honest opinion, or a few of my friends over at Shelfari. The more reviews as book has, the more likely I am to give it a chance. If it is a favorite author, however, I'll usually read the book before I read any reviews. Comparisons in book reviews also play a part in the decision when deciding whether to read something or not.

Today, I've finally gotten my hands on the 100 classic books Nintendo game and am happy for the chance to read some old classics I've heard about--but never actually gotten my hands on. Word-of-mouth recommendation and book reviews influenced the purchase and now I can't wait to squeeze in a bit of reading around my busy summer schedule. ^_^

It's great to have a reviewer who has similar tastes, isn't it? Enjoy your nintendo thingy. :D
