    Okay, but what did you think about the book? You got a free book to review and then don’t give us your thoughts . . . honestly, that’s not very helpful to your readers. Do you like it? Was it well done? What impressed you about it? How much does it retail for? Is that a fair price? What about the quality of the book? A little help here would be appreciated. Thanks!!

      Fred, not all the books I receive in the mail are ones I request to review. Yes the book was free, but it was unsolicited. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to read all the books that show up at my door. My husband and family would really suffer if that’s all I did. 😉 For those books that I find interesting, but cannot review, I spotlight. I thought that this one would interest my readers and if so they could take some time to check it out for themselves. Sorry that the post was not helpful for you.

      Now a word about my reviews — Many of the books I review are free. I receive them from publishers, PR groups and authors. However, I do buy a good number of books that I review. I always note the source of the books. If I like a book, I tell you why. If I don’t, I am honest, but direct the reader to a positive review. Reviews are by their nature subjective. What I like, may not be what you like. It is always good to check out multiple reviews. If my reviews prove unhelpful for you, there are a lot of great bloggers out there — I list some great ones in my sidebar. Please check them out!
