August Reviews Hall Of Fame: Part 3

 The next 40 reviews, posted from August 10-14

1.  Review a book on Amazon
2.  Tweet the link to the #AugustReviews hashtag.

It's great that alot of people have said 'I read this ages ago, but this has prompted me to review it'... which is what it's all about, doesn't have to be a book you've just read.

If you're not sure about any of this, please ask (preferably via Twitter @TerryTyler4, as I'm having trouble with my blog comments at the moment), or read my original post HERE.

Hall of Fame Part 2  HERE

Sorry, got to do the moany bit...

#AugustReviews hashtag: links to Amazon reviews written by you, not promotion for your own books.  Please respect the work that everyone has put in by not misusing the hashtag.

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 this terrific post on With Love for Books with some great one liners: it's HERE.
