About Reviews

The majority of books that I review are books that I received from a publisher or author in exchange for a review.  I select all books that I receive and accept no compensation for reviews, thus I feel no obligation to write anything but my honest opinion of a book. If I have received a copy of a book from a publisher or author it will be noted at the end of the review. 

At the end of reviews, I will often include links to where the book can be purchased. I receive no monetary compensation for any clicks nor any portion of a purchase made as a result of clicking a link. They are simply included for convenience.
