Book Reviews Matter:

Chances are you do not leave a review on a book you have read – whether you liked it or not. Now a day, people seem to be too busy to even take time to smell the roses, let alone take the couple minutes it takes to comment on a book you read.

First off, stop and smell the roses. It is important to take time for yourself and “regroup.” Second, please if you have read a book (assuming you have taken the time to read), then please leave a review on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and/or social media.

Here are a few reasons why you should leave a review:

  1. A large number of reviews will help authors' books to be seen (suggested) on sites like Amazon.com. It has been stated that it takes at least 10 reviews on Amazon before a book can be added to those “also bought” and “you might also like” lists.
  2. Word of Mouth – if someone sees a positive review and decides to give it a try, he or she might also like it enough to tell others as well as leave a review. So, don’t just talk about it out loud – leave a review and then post it on social media.
  3. If you have a positive experience with a book – leave a good review. This will help when others are looking for a good book to curl up and read with.

Not everyone will feel the same about a book, but reviews will help readers to decide. Many readers will read the reviews and even though some may have been negative, they will “bite the bullet” and give it a try.

Until May’s blog – Happy reading!
