I'm asking you for a personal favor. Go review three books today. I'd love for one or two to be mine, of course, but really just do it for the last few books you've read. You have enormous power, for free and at leisure, to make books live or languish.
It doesn't have to be long: a line or two is fine. How did a book make you feel? What would you want the author, or potential readers, to know?
Your opinion is something that is craved and feared. If you want writers to write, buy their books and also review them.
(also, write to the authors, we love it! and most write back!)
I have two new books out and I look forward to your reviews.
