The date on the review is that the date the review was made or the date the book was purchased?

The date on the review is the date the customer bought the book/kindle.

They could be the same if the person bought the kindle and then did a review the same day.

I checked to make sure and the above is correct.

I don't think so... when I leave reviews, the date is the date I left the review. (I just checked to make sure.)

Besides, not everyone buys the book they're reviewing off Amazon--some read the book at some other place.

Reason I asked was a review dated Nov. 11 just showed up today. Dec. 26 that's about 46 days. Amazon must have checked it out good.

No!

(Indeed, the reviewer doesn't have to have bought the book at all.)

Don't think too hard on this. I wrote the review before and deleted it because there was a bunch of NO This Review was not Helpful votes.

My review had about 13 NO votes vs 3 YES Votes.

At the time I thought people for some reason was being nasty. It wasn't just my review most of the other reviews have a lot of NO VOTES.

So I deleted it planning to do the review later when whoever was doing it cooled off, which is what I did.

So Amazon had nothing to do with this plus all of the NO votes were removed however the review date went back to the day I got the ebook from Amazon.
