How to post your own reader reviews  

Reviews by readers are far more important than you may think, especially when it comes to online purchasing.  Please, if you can, take the time to write a short review on any of the sites below.  Don’t worry about fancy writing.  Imagine you’re writing a note telling a friend about the book.  You can simply say, I really liked this book and leave it at that.  Most of them have a rating system with stars.  Feel free to indulge your inner gusher.   

On Amazon,  http://www.amazon.com you must have made at least one purchase with your current email address in order to post a review. 

Choose the category.  books

Type in author and title.  When the book cover comes up, double click to open that page.  Use the arrow buttons on the right hand side of your screen to scroll down to Customer Reviews.   On right side of screen is a button saying create your own review. 

At Barnes & Noble, http://www.barnesandnoble.com/  search for the author and title, then when the book page is open, you’ll see a button for customer reviews.  If you don’t, scroll down and there will be a larger box assigning stars for various categories, and at the bottom left a button to write your own review.  If you’ve not created an account, they’ll ask you to do so. 

http://www.goodreads.com/  This is a bit more complicated but kind of fun once you get into it and begin to name some of your favorite books.  You can post a review once you’ve joined and entered your books.  There’s no rush to put in your books.  I started out with three, and took it from there. 

Also, if you have Facebook or Twitter or any other social networking site, you can simply post that you are ‘on the way to purchase’ or ‘in the middle of reading’ or ‘just can’t put down’ or ‘totally need to get to work but want to just read’ EVERYONE SHE LOVED by Sheila Curran.
