yes, books that are best-sellers are usually pretty good books.

Yes. I've done it before and they have always been great books.

No, but The Secret was a good book anyway.

It's a good indication if the book is worthy.

Really? Seriously?


I guess if a book's a best-seller, you know that lots of other people have liked it and that it therefore probably has something enjoyable about it.

No, the only reason to put a book in your to-read list is that you are actually interested in reading it.

If a book is a best seller but you are not iterested in it there is no point in reading it.
