- Books That You Haven't Read
- Books That You've Read
- Books That No One Knows About or Pretty Much Pay Little if Any Attention To (These can fall into either category up top, but they have their little corner in heaven)
I personally go for the reviews of books I've read. Why? Because I like to know what other people thought of the book I either found fascinating or as boring as watching paint dry. If I thought the book was out of this world and you are then telling me that the book sucked, I want to know what happened along the yellow book road that your mind and mine started to take different paths.
Why did your mind took a turn for the worst and entered the path leading to Suckville while mine continued on the path believing that the book was good? It intrigues me. Not everybody is the same.
On occasion I like reading reviews of books to come that I have yet to read, but my favorite reviews are always the ones about the books I already read. I comment mostly on these. I swear every time I see a bad review (bad as in the reviewer didn't like the book, not criticizing technique or anything) of a book I adored I am just baffled. But it's fun! It's fun to see how other people react to that specific book you adored, hated, or simple fell flat to you.
So which category is your favorite? Which reviews are you most likely to read?
