Anything Goes on Saturday - Choosing Review Books
Labels: Anything goes on saturday
This is a new meme called "Anything Goes on Saturday". It's a chance to choose any topic you want and talk about it on Saturday - it can be about a book, TV show, movie, a recipe or just an update on your week. Whatever you choose.
I decided not to use Mr. Linky for this meme. If you'd like to join in, just comment and post your direct link to your post. Then, go and visit other blogs and see what's on everyone's minds this week. Enjoy!
My topic this week - selecting which books to review. I think most of us get many requests to review books, so I'm wondering how you all decide which to accept. I keep saying I'm not going to accept anymore for awhile - at least until I catch up. However, all the requests sound so good that I can't pass them up.
Basically, my rule of thumb is to accept only those books that fit into the genres that I enjoy reading. I rarely accept a book outside my genre for a review. I will read outside my genre for my own enjoyment, but not for a review. I feel as if the book starts out with a strike against it because it's not a genre I like in the first place. I want to be fair to the author/publisher.
Lately I've been really lucky and have enjoyed all the books sent to me for a review.
So, how do you choose what you will be reviewing?
