Follow Friday: Have you ever purchased a book because of a bad review?

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #91

Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

A: I would have to say no. I have never intentionally purchased a book because of a bad review, but
I do not let negative reviews stop me from reading a particular book.


To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
    • (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee &Alison Can Read}
    • (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
    • Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
    • Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say “hi” in your comments and that they are now following you.
    • If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn’t have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
    • Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don’t just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don’t say “HI”
    • If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love…and the followers
    • If you’re new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
Happy Friday Guys and I hope you enjoy your weekend! Happy long weekend!

  3. Happy Friday!

    I think that if more than half of the people I consider true friends on GR negatively review a book, I might ignore it, or borrow it from the library to see what all the noise is about.

  4. Tastes differ, right? I mean, I often read books because of negative revies, but then mostly because I think I might still enjoy them, even though often in a twisted way. LOL
