Booking Through Thursday (5): Reading Book Reviews
This week, Booking Through Thursday asks: Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?
Of course I read book reviews. I am a book blogger. I get my reviews from a couple places. Namely other bloggers with similar tastes to mine and I also read reviews through the Washington Post and NPR's book blog. I trust all of those sources. If the review makes me interested in a book, I add it to my TBR list (check out my Goodreads link below and you'll see my TBR stands at well over 700 books! Eek and yay!).
I try very, very hard to get most of my books from the library. I would have to live in a cardboard box if I bought every single book that I read, which would be sad because I don't think all of my books would fit in the cardboard box and my husband and cats may be a little upset having to live outside and all. So anyway, the book buying must be constrained.
What say you? Where do you get your book reviews?
