Tuesday Thingers

Most of us book bloggers like to write book reviews- if we don't love to write book reviews- but here's today's question. When it comes to LT (and your blog), do you review every book you read? Do you just review Early Reviewers or ARCs? Do you review only if you like a book, or only if you feel like you have to? How soon after reading do you post your review? Do you post them other places- other social networking sites, Amazon, etc.?

My answer: I review most books that I read, especially if I have strong feelings. When it comes to my blog I try to review every book I read, or at least every adult book (I don't write formal reviews for the mountains of childrens' books I read for work). Right now I'm a little behind on reviews but I will probably get to most of them eventually! Early Reviewers and ARCs get priority but these days I'm more focused on the "me" books. I'll review a book whether I liked it or not, and I'll usually post my review within a few days of finishing it. Usually I'm thinking about what to say while I'm reading! I post links to my reviews on my LT account and on GoodReads. My blog feeds into my Facebook account and my Livejournal as well.

Here's my Thinger!

Hmmm - after reading your answer, I may want to change a few things. I don't know that I really ever post links to my reviews on LT or GoodReads - I usually post the whole review there. . . also didn't know I could have the post updated on Facebook . . . hmmmm

I review most of the books I read, and am never less than honest with my thoughts.

If I am reviewing an ARC or review copy, I also give them priority, and the same theory applies...I am honest in my review. Most of those books, though, are ones I have specifically asked the publisher for a copy of, knowing that it would fit the criteria or genre of what I like to read.

I don't solicit or want to receive random copies of books.

I do review books I have read in the past, and especially books pertaining to Jewish holidays, Jewish history, and commentary.
