Did you ever think about how important book reviews are? Jo Parfitt, over at Write Your Life Stories explains just why and how books and book reviews need each other in this post called “The brilliance of book reviews.”
If you love to read, you can help your favorite author by writing a review. Using social media, these reviews can reach many readers. If you don’t have a blog, you can post your reviews on Amazon or other online booksellers. Or if the book is a memoir, send me the review, and I will consider posting it here. I will make the decision to publish or not based on the quality of the writing and the relevance of the book to the subject of this blog.
Writers often decry the loss of review sections in major newspapers and magazines. As the mainstream media constricts space due to loss of subscribers, blogs proliferate and digital space opens. Let’s keep the spirit of friendly critique alive!
