It's that time again! Time for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books!
What is it? Well, it's a way for bloggers and readers to find each other. You write a little post about the subject of the week; link it up, THEN (and this is the important part), you hit a few of the other linked up blogs (take your time; you can spread it throughout the weekend), visit, comment, follow if you like what you see, and make new friends. THIS week it started a bit late, so the hop will run through Tuesday!
Each week, to encourage participation, we get to answer a different question. This week's question is:
“As a blog reader, what information (besides the book review) do you like to see in other bloggers’ reviews of books? (For example – Author bio, social media links, book synopsis from Amazon/Goodreads or one written by the blogger, page count, ISBN number, link to purchase, etc.)”
I like to see some of the things I put into my own reviews - a synopsis is great, but not necessary if the blogger gives a brief synopsis in their review. DEFINITELY a link to purchase - really, if I'm THAT interested in a book, I'd like to be able to put it in a cart from the review; otherwise, I might forget. Another item that I really like to see is a rating; otherwise, how do I really know what level of interest the book generated in the reviewer?
How about you? If you have your own Hop post, please feel free to leave a link in the comments; I'd love to visit!
