Mailbox Monday

May host: Abi @ 4 The Love Of Books

Wow, it’s been a month since my last MM post! Guess that’s not to hard to do when you aren’t receiving many books. I told myself at the end of last year that I was going to cut way back on accepting books for review, and I did. But I still get a few here and there, and these are the ones I’ve gotten since my last MM which was 4/15:

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger
Win from Kathy @ BermudiaOnion

Running Home by Cami Checketts
from the author

Blind Curves by Linda Crill
from The Cadence Group

Books 1 & 2 in the Sara Weston Chronicles series by D.J. Niko
from Madallion Media Group
The Tenth Saint & The Riddle of Solomon

  6. You have a nice selection. What variety! I know what you mean about doing less reviews. Me too! I have a lot of books on my shelf to get to.

  7. Welcome back to MM! Good books!

  8. I am proud of you sticking to your goal! I use my public library all the time!

  9. I know a lot of people are now charging to review books. I don’t think I blame them.

    • Terry- I don’t know any book blogger who charges for reviews. All the book bloggers I know do it because they love books and want to recommend them to others. I don’t know how someone could charge for a book review if… #1- they read the synopsis and decided to buy the book because it sounded good to them, or #2- they got the book free in exchange for a review. I wouldn’t put a lot of stock in a review if I knew the person was paid for the review. I think that would sway their review in favor of the book.

      I also don’t know why an author would pay for a review. There are so many bloggers out there willing to do it for free, because of the love they have for reading.
