Considering I just finished a manuscript, I have something I want to read – Stephanie Queen’s book, THE ROMANTICS. She’s a USA Today best seller! And it’s easy to see why.
Stephanie writes great stories so I’m looking forward to this. (I just wish I could type as fast as I read.) But it will be nice to snuggle with a good book and put my own writing behind me for a few days. I’ve got several books sitting on the top of my TBR (to be read) pile. I plan to knock out that TBR pile over the next two days.
Life is too short to read a bad book! If you don’t like it, go read another. There’s too many great books to spend your time reading ones that don’t appeal. If I’m not into it by the first 25-30 pages, I’ll skip to the end and call it quits.
And if you like a book, do the author a favor and write a review! Three sentences. It’ll take you two minutes. Is it the first or the fifth book your read by this author? Do you love the hero? Or do you love the heroine? Is this a genre you normally read? It means the world to the author to have good reviews!
If you hate the book, then why did you read it? Okay, there’s a spelling error on page 26 – it happens! Seriously! These books are converted from doc. files to .mobi or .epub. It might be speled correctly in the .doc but something happens along the way. Letters get dropped or changed. Thumb becomes thump! Or in my case, boots became books. Don’t choke an author over a misspelling! I’m finding less mistakes in Indie books than I am in those put out by the big legacy publishers. Have a giggle over the misspelling and don’t worry about it.
