I read books. Not a lot. I’m a slow reader; not slow as in it takes 30 minutes to read a page. Slow as in I only get about four hours a week to read. At this rate, I usually read a book a month.
I’ve realised lately how difficult it is for authors to find reviewers. I’ve also learnt that reviews are important to book sales. No reviews could equal low numbers. One review may encourage a reader to purchase a book. Hundreds of reviews can send book sales through the roof.
During my reading, I’ve discovered books by large publishing companies (aka traditional publishers) are often no less flawed than books published by authors, or I’m just lucky enough to read great self-published books and unlucky to read less than perfect traditionally published books.
