Yes, I know, I seem to be skipping more of these lately. But I do it when I can. <3
Just a reminder, I get my featured blogger from Alison, and parajunkee has her own favorite. You can find both in the linky.

This week's question:
Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of its bad review?
my answer: No. Reviews, quite honestly, don't have a lot of impact on my decision to buy in the first place. I use reviews to determine how soon and in what order to buy the books I want, or to check out the premise and general opinion of a book that's just recently come out. The general point of what I'm saying is, whether a review is bad or good doesn't affect my overall decision on a singular level. If I'm really undecided and depending on reviews, I take a sample of reviews from many different people all over the internet.
My question/activity: Share a story from your early reading days.
My early reading story: I was in kindergarten, and no one had told my teacher that I could already read. Thing is, I was shy. So whenever she came near me, I would stop reading (because I could only read out loud at the time). It took her two months to figure out that I was ahead of my peers as far as reading went.
