Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
Yes and no. Yes, because when deciding on whether or not to buy a book I always read reviews on it first. I read good reviews and I also try to search for a few bad reviews as well. Why, you ask? Good question, young grasshopper. I like hearing the pros and cons on books because it helps me better decide if I want to read it myself. Lets say for instance, I was contemplating on whether or not I wanted to visit this new ice cream shop down the street, and I trained my ears to hear nothing but good things about the ice cream shop (Work with me, I have a point, I swear!). So I walk into the shop with a 12-watt smile on my face, ready for a good 'ole time. I taste the ice cream and... it tastes like my right foot! Not the left one, the right! So I walk away disappointed. Why was I disappointed? Because I tricked and bamboozled myself by only reading good reviews on it!
And no, because I've never actually bought a book solely because I read a bad review on it. I don't think that'll ever happen actually... I don't... understand why anyone would... buy a book because... it looked bad... *Ends off awkwardly*
