Do you read book reviews? Whose do you trust? Do they affect your reading habits? Your buying habits?

    My post’s up. Generally speaking, I read book reviews more to get a sense of what others thought of the book after I’ve already read it–that sense of community and shared experience.

    Where reviews most affect my buying habits is with comics. Thinking on this topic has also given me a new angle to consider some podcasts I listen to.

    Expanded thoughts at my post.
