I love to read if I have the time I would read 4,5 or 6 books a week. Unfortunately my time and lately my eyes tell me that is too many.
Many of the books I read are from Amazon, on my Kindle. Since I am a full time RV’er I have room to pack the kindle with tons of books. And yes I know that most RV’ers give and take books from the lending library at the Resorts.
One of my pet peeves is turned down pages on a book and the use of weird things for book marks. But that is just me! My kindle is always on the last page I read.
Anyway, my point is, when I read a book my first thought is to review it in my mind. I leave reviews for writers when they are really good, when the characters jump out at me and leave enough of an impression that I remember their names and the plot of the story.
Recently, I have begun writing again and have a book on Kindle, it is disheartening as a writer to have people read my book and not take the time and effort to write a short review. I understand that as a new writer I have a lot to learn, and the probability of becoming a best seller is not very high, however everyone has to start somewhere. I love to create characters give them life, and sometimes let them die, and for a short time I live in their world with them.
