Sounds like a perfect bumper sticker, doesn’t it?
So, it’s interesting to me that a lot of folks think they aren’t “qualified” to write a review of a book they’ve enjoyed. Gone are the days where a few select people wrote book reviews for the newspaper and special periodicals. Now, reviews are on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and just about any book buying website. Then, there are awesome online places like Goodreads.com and Library Thing or Shelfari that give readers a chance to not only share what they liked about the last books they read…but also connect with other readers that enjoy the same type of books — ultimately bringing awareness to other authors in the genres you enjoy.
The truth is … we are ALL “qualified” to write a book review.
It doesn’t even have to be long. Some of the most impactful reviews are very short. Here are a couple I really appreciated that were just posted yesterday!
If you’re not comfortable with it, though, there are other things you can do to help spread the word about the books you’ve enjoyed. You could go to Amazon.com and bring up the book and see the list of reviews there. Just click the YES this was helpful and you’ve done a little something to add weight to that opinion. :)
Also, on Amazon.com scroll down to where there is a link to the Authors Page link::
Click on Visit Amazon’s Nancy Naigle Page and you’ll be taken to the author bio. On the far right, you’ll see a LIKE button. You can LIKE that author and you can also Facebook or Tweet from right there.
Easy quick ways to support your favorite authors.
Hugs and happy reading~
