The free books?
Discussion on a couple of other threads have been branching out in this direction but I thought I'd try to get it all in one place. Add your answer and then post your blog.
Myself and the reader.
I write my reviews for the reader, not the author or the publisher.
I blog to hold myself accountable and exercise the writing muscle at least a few times per week.
The free books are nice because I get to read current books and expand my reading tastes.
Now that I'm blogging what I read, I'm loving that people comment because I can see where I might be doing a poor job describing the book, or they might point out a different perspective. It really enhances the reading process and it's also helping me improve my writing skills.
Sometimes I read books or go to my classes at university and my mind is completely blank. Nothing grapples on my memory and I live a docile, sleepy life. Or I find a book that I like and I think about it a lot and then have no one to share it with because none of my close acquaintances have read it. The perfect solution is to blog about books and write reviews.
Review a book forces me to think about it and put my thoughts into words and clarifying them in the process. And having posted the reviews somewhere accessible, I can at least delude myself that I'm somehow communicating to people with similar book-interests.
The free books are a nice perk, but, honestly, I'd probably keep writing reviews even if I got nothing tangible in exchange. At the moment, and as usual, I am behind - again. I should be writing reviews instead of this post. :)
