I am a big proponent of book reviews and try to encourage readers as well as writers to leave reviews.
Book reviews help potential readers become familiar with a book before reading it; it gives them an idea of how they might react to it and allows them to determine whether the book will be right for them. As often as I can, I try to leave a review for most of the books I read. Whether it’s a few words, or a lengthy dissertation (just kidding), I try to share my thoughts, so that the next person looking at the reviews has an idea of what they’re getting. They can decide from there whether they want to read the book or not.
Book reviews also provide the author with greater visibility and a greater chance of getting discovered by more readers. Your number goal as an author should be to build your audience and this is a great tool to help do that. In addition, it also opens the door to more sales, enabling the author to write more.
Writing a review is a win-win situation for the reader and the author. So write a review today!
