Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpagesNow, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!
This week's Question: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?
My answer: I think bad reviews make me curious. Mentioning no names, I once read a terrible tear down of another author's work. The remarks were childish, over-the-top insensitive, and downright offensive in some circumstances. All I could think of was if this person could not form a rational opinion with clear and concise reasoning why they didn't enjoy the book and consistently dismissed any positives, then why would I take their remarks seriously without reading for myself.. I try not to base my opinions on the verbal thrashings of a f@#$!head.
So, in light of this, yes, I do buy books that other people have written poorly about, because you never can tell.
Happy Follow Friday, everyone!
