1. How do you review books so quickly?
I write my reviews ahead of time and carefully plan which review will be posted on any given day. As for reading the books, many of the books I review I have owned for a number of years and have practically memorized them. I have a good memory when it comes to books, but on the rare occasion I don’t remember enough, I will go back and re-read a novel before reviewing it. Obviously I read a lot of new fiction, generally around 10-20 books per month.
2. Do you make money by recommending books?
No, I don’t. I link to Amazon and Barnes and Noble because they are two of the busiest, most reliable book sellers online. I am also in no way profiting from recommending the books of indie, self-published or traditionally published authors. Which is why you can expect that when I recommend a book, I really did like it.
3. Will you run ads on your site?
The answer is totally, unequivocally, no. Aside from the very few that WordPress runs (because I haven’t paid to take them off), I will not ever run ads on my blog. I don’t want to make money from this; I just truly enjoy book reviewing. So if you’re going to solicit me to run ads, don’t even bother. Askimet picks up your comments and I delete them without a second thought. Oh, and trying to get me to ‘exchange links’ with something like a hair loss site? Yeah, you obviously haven’t read my blog and have no idea who my audience is.
