readthebloodybook: Not only reviews promote books. Photos, memes, edits, random posts of book-love, quotes, fan art, tags all promote books too. Reviews are not the only way to promote books we love but they seem to be the only method publishers value. I think that’s silly. Interesting and excellent points.

The Suspicious Story Behind Harper Lee’s ‘Go Set a Watchman’ I have been reading about this a bit…as an author, I hate the idea of things I did not specifically choose to allow out into the world being seen by people.  I’ve heard from some friends that Set a Watchman is incredibly rough – I would hate for people to judge my work based on early, rough work that was really only meant to …

The first book was remarkable…it’s basically about the love affair between an American woman who goes over to Israel and an interrogator.
