Thanks Susan, IJ, for your comments! That's one vote for buying based on a bookstore browse, one for social networking. Be sure to vote in the poll over at Book Buzz so we have a record! Thanks!

I bought Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL from Amazon because I saw someplace on the Internet (perhaps Sarah Weinman's blog) that it won the Man Booker award. Before clicking my "buy with one click" tab, I read a sample page of text. She can write.

I confess I'm also a "first two sentence" watchdog. If I don't like the very first paragraph, I'm very unlikely to purchase a book. Thanks for your comment, Dan!
