Susan Toy at Island Editions says it best. I reblogged this from Books: Publishing, Reading, Writing
The Best Way To Thank An Author …
And, if you enjoyed that book, share the information with fellow Readers: On Goodreads, BookLikes, Amazon, Kobo, iTunes, your blog, my blog (Reading Recommendations), review sites, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, with the staff at your local bookstore (whether indie, chain, or online), with librarians … essentially wherever other Readers congregate and learn about which great books to read next.
I and all of my fellow authors will thank you by continuing to write what you love to read.
And please, Authors and Readers, feel free to reblog and share this message, the importance of which can never be overstated. Word-of-mouth is still our very best promotional tool and the most effective means for other Readers to discover new books. If you get into the habit of reviewing what you read and passing on the information, ALL Authors, and Readers, will thank you in return!
