Narrator: Take a random book from one of your many filled shelves and set it down somewhere. Avoid scouring for feedback online and try to go into it with a free mind and zero expectations. It’s interesting how we form our own opinions and are either startled or find ourselves in complete alignment with the reviews we seek out afterwards. Humans are human, and it’s in our nature to understand what other people think about a shared commonality. Digging around for early feedback does have a tendency to get in the way of our own formed consensus, as it places a worrisome red flag atop our ready to read and view headspace.
