Actually, it depends.

If it's a craft book on writing, I do look at the bio before I purchase. For a while, there were a lot of non-fiction writers dashing off craft books on fiction writing. They didn't write fiction at all, but they were lecturing fiction writers and moi on how to do it? I started doing this after I got one of those 'write a book in 30 days' books, and the author inserted a really weird technique that made my eyes cross and think, "Do you know what you're talking about?" Flip, flip, flip. Bio: Non-fiction only.

Generally though, I only look at the bio when I get to in the course of reading the book.
