Quick Tip!

Today's Quick Tip is to about reviews!  Before you purchase a book, go through the reviews and read a few of them.  Just be careful, some will contain spoilers.  Try to find the medium to semi-long reviews.  The super long reviews will typically contain all the spoilers, whereas the short and super short reviews don't contain more than "It was good." or "I really liked it."  Reviews will give you a better idea of what you are getting into, especially if you are on the fence about buying a book.  They can convince you to purchase or pass. 

If you don't have time to look at the reviews, look at the star ratings.  Most sites will state what percent of the stars are 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1.  That will also help tremendously.  If the majority of the stars are between 3 and 5, the chances of liking the book are higher; however, if most of the stars are between 1 and 3, you might want to pass and move on.  Happy Quick Tip Day!
