The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
What percentage (roughly) of the books you read do you write blog post reviews for?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Complex Chaos)
Right now, I have overburdened myself with ARCs and blog tour books – so the answer currently is 100%.
When I have a typical ARC and blog tour load, though (enough for 2 reviews per week but no more), I have time to read books that I have bought or borrowed from the library. My rule of thumb is that I only review purchased or borrowed books if I have something that I really want to say. Those are books just for me to enjoy and not worry about saying anything about if I don’t choose to do so. It enables me to sit back and enjoy them more without the pressure of having to come up with words to describe my reading experience.
Not that writing reviews is all that burdensome, but I like to have little bits that I have a choice about. Don’t we all want the power to choose now and again? So, during regular times, my review rate is roughly 75%.
I’ve told you mine, now you tell me yours: What percentage of books that you read do you review?
