Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's BTT asks . . . Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?
I don't usually read the reviews per se, but I will take note of the number of stars a book has been given. I trust Amazon and Paperback Swap since they tend to include varied readers from around the country. It may affect whether or not I purchase a book, but if I'm dead-set on purchasing a certain one then the star-count doesn't matter.
