Reviews... should I read them?

I am at an intersting point, post-release, for Prada and Prejudice. I've had a number of good reviews, both official industry ones like Publisher's Weekly and SLJ, as well as those from review bloggers and regular teens. I feel good about my book, and I know its finding it's audience.

But I still stalk my Amazon and Goodreads reviews like no tommorrow. As time goes on, I know my chances of discovering some really bad reviews goes up.

So why do I keep looking for more? I feel like I should stop while I'm ahead, and yet I keep checking over and over, hoping to see more reviews. If I quit now, I can skip merrily into the sunset, feeling good about my book.

A Q for Authors: do you continue reading your reviews long after release? If you don't, how do you keep yourself from reading them?

Also, many thanks to those who have shared their thoughts of Prada & Prejudice on Amazon, Goodreads, or their blogs. It really has made this whole experience so real-- people are actually reading this thing I wrote. WOW!
