A few comments this week:

“No, but I have checked several books out of the library based on online reviews” – Cynthia Dalton

“I read a ton of books and only trust the reviewers I know from the web; SFSignal; Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist; Fantasy Book Critic; Bookgasm and a handful of others. You bet they influence my book buying, and I’m glad they do.” – David
