We are huge readers around here and while some of the books are ones that we have purchased and shared with you, with the majority of them we received a free copy of the books that we reviewed from the publisher or author. That is all we receive from them. Every single opinion and statement that we post is our own and is based on the belief that we should treat every book that we review with respect. And write an honest and fair review that can, hopefully, allow an insight into the stories that helps like-minded friends make decisions with their precious book budgets. Not everyone will agree and we would never discourage anyone from buying a book that struck their fancy. Nor would we ever encourage anyone to purchase anything based on any sort of incentive (we don’t receive).
