#AugustReviews Hall of Fame: Part 2

The next 43 reviews, posted from August 6th - 1oth

I can't believe how far-reaching #AugustReviews has become!  Again, thanks so much to everyone who has joined in, spread the word, re-posted, blogged, retweeted, put on Facebook, etc etc.... now, we just need everyone who reads it to write a review!  Huge thanks to everyone who has contributed so far.

If you don't know what it's about, my original post is HERE.  The first batch of reviews is HERE.

Sorry, got to do the boring bit too...

#AugustReviews hashtag: links to Amazon reviews written by you only, not promotion for your own books.  Please respect this.

and..please do not tweet blog links to the hashtag 

Why not?
  • The purpose of this initiative is to get more readers posting reviews on Amazon.  If you post blog links, it might put off new reviewers and lead them to think you need a blog to review.
  • It causes more work for me, as I have to go and seek out your review on Amazon!  

Do keep them coming!  If you'd like to join in but are not sure what to write, there's advice in my original post, or you can click on any of the reviews below for inspiration, or read a terrific post on With Love for Books with some great one liners: it's HERE.

Okay, here's Round Two ~ click the title of the book for the review :)
