You READ – but do you leave REVIEWS?
Besides reading books by your favorite authors, here are two more ways to support them. One is to tell your friends. The other is writing reviews.

Thanks for your support.

You don’t have to, Amazon, for example, only ask you to use a minimum of 25 non repeating words.

I liked this book because –
it reminded me of –
it made me think about –
it made me so scared I couldn’t sleep for –
it made me feel homesick for –
