Thanks to all who entered to win a copy of Numbers by Rachel Ward. I asked the question:
How do book reviews on blogs affect your decision to read a book or not?
According to Random.org here are the three winners and their answers:
Review are very important to me. If i see a book and it looks good, i always look for some reviews. If the book had a lot of bad reviews i wont get it, if the reviews are good, ill give it a try. Sometimes the reviews are good but i didnt like the book, but things happen right?

Firstly when I browse through book reviews I see a lot of new books unknown to me yet, and when the review piques my interest then I sure will add that book to my TBR. Also, when I’m familiar with a book blogger reading taste and know that our expectations of a novel are similar, then I will give his/her reviews a lot of consideration when deciding whether to pick up that book or not.

I check out book blogs for reviews on books by new authors and my favorite authors too. A reviewer that I trust sways my opinion on whether to buy the book.
