A significant number of the reviews on cool-reads are written by other cool
readers from around the world. The reviews were sent in via a form on the site
and we looked at them all and decided whether to accept or reject them.
Cool-reads had some brilliant star reviewers who had at least 30 reviews accepted & featured on the site.
