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.

  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
