The question that everyone was asked this week was:
Have you ever bought a book because of a bad review?
I can't say that I can recall buying a book because of a bad review, but it's something that I would consider doing!
I don't go out looking for books to give bad ratings to, of course, I just like to see what I think of books for myself. I actually think it's more interesting to read reviews of books where the review differs to my own opinion - it's interesting to see what people dislike about a book that I really enjoyed, or vice versa. I wouldn't say that bad reviews influence my book buying all that much - if I love the sound of a book, I'll buy it. I'm more likely to pick up a book after reading several positive reviews, but I'm not less likely to pick up a book due to several negative reviews.
