Book Reviews on Amazon

Danielle Ofri told my writing group back in January that those book reviews on amazon make a huge difference to a writer, not only in terms of feedback but in terms of sales. So I promised myself I'd post one but of course I promptly forgot. Along came the excellent blog post on Literary Citizenship, and so, finally, as part of my quest to be a better literary citizen, I finally did what I have never done before: post book reviews on amazon for the three memoirs I have read so far this year with my memoir group.

Now post your own for books you've read recently! It's a small token of appreciation to those authors whose books you enjoyed. Give and take.

  1. Hi Annette. I've finally had time to click over here to your blog in between traveling and doing my own homework for our online blog course -- and inching along with my own memoir. That phrase "literary citizenship" just jumped off the page at me. I know this is one place I fall down. Some weeks it's all I can do to engage in my own writing, but I do also long for more involvement in the literary community. Here in St. Louis it's practically impossible to find a writing community of essayists. But what you say about the reviews is true. I will make sure to go to Amazon and write two reviews this week. And continue my search for a writing group.
