Yeeessss! I freaking hate that! I understand that the summary will be inside the dust jacket, and that I can still find it, but seriously! I can’t say I’ve ever picked up a book based on the reviews and quotes from other authors. Like EVER!! Save the prepaid praise for the dust jacket and tell me about the content on the back. Sometimes, I do a walk by B&N run and I don’t have time to open it, I only have a split second to skim the back and make a decision, as I’m not supposed to be in the bookstore and someone is waiting for me outside. So, please can the canned compliments and just tell me about the book, I can Google the reviews after I have read it and formed my own opinion. End of rant. Haha.
Do you guys really read those quotes? Have you ever purchased or read a book solely based on the recommendation of another author? If so, or not, let me know!!
And as always “Get up, go out into the world, and do awesome shit.”
