A Q&A About Books, Goodreads, And Reviews

Why do you read?

I need to escape from reality or else I’d lose the little sanity I have left.

Why did you make a Goodreads account?

I didn’t want to rely on my memory to track the books I’ve read. Especially since I’m not getting any younger.

What do you look for in a book?

A good story. Great writing doesn’t hurt either. I like characters I can relate to, resonate with. Give me character development or give me fictional death.

What made you start writing reviews?

It wasn’t enough to read books. So I decided to review them too.

What are your reading goals for 2018?

They’re similar to the resolutions I made in 2017. I want to read every day. I’d also like to expand my bookshelf a bit. I tend to read more fiction than nonfiction, so I want to dip my mind further in the latter.

What are your reviewing goals in 2018?

I’m a bit behind on getting my reviews up, so if I can catch up that’ll be ideal.

Happy reading!

The Best Of The Best

I don’t know about you, but I love reading reviews.

If it’s a big purchase or a product I’m unfamiliar with, I’ll read multiple reviews, so I know I’m getting the biggest bang for my buck.

Just how many times have you wanted to read a thorough, unbiased review of something before you purchase it?

Probably too many.

Oh, and please don’t get me started on how much time I’ve spent reading reviews only to wonder how many of them are actually helpful or legitimate.

But Reviews.com might just be my saving grace. It could be yours too. It’s a website that conducts research on all kinds of products and services, reviewing the best of the best before sharing all that research with you. Even better, it’s free.

Also, I’m going to assume you’re a blogger, who may or may not be interested in finding the best web host for your site. After all, the best bloggers deserve the best web hosts for their blogs. But blogging is one thing, finding a host is another.

I don’t need to know the number of web hosts that exist in this world. I doubt you want to shift through all of them either.

Luckily for you, their research team recently decided to analyze over 200 of the most popular hosts and narrow it down to the top few. Read more about it here. They’re a blog too. They want the best for other bloggers. We look out for each other, remember?

From the best alarm clock to the best yoga mat and everything in between, they’ve got you covered. So you never make the mistake of buying something you hate ever again.
