Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?
Well, of course! I read other bloggers’ reviews and sometimes the New York Times review. I’m not sure how much other reviewers really influence my reading decisions as much as give me exposure to new books and new writers, though. I have strange taste in books so it’s hard to find someone to rely on completely, good or bad, for a driving opinion. Like I said, though, there are many opinions and options for exposure out there so using the entire field as a back splash for reading inspiration is more useful to me than seeking out specific opinions.
