Today’s short discussion post is all about posting reviews, and why it is important to post them.
For a while, I just posted my reviews to Goodreads, which was good in one way but not so good in another way. A lot of people use Goodreads to read reviews, get book recommendations and interact with fellow book lovers. While it is amazing to post reviews to Goodreads, it shouldn’t be the only place that reviews are posted. Reviews need to be posted to retailer websites. Other than the library, Barnes and Noble is the main retailer that I use to obtain books. Even when you borrow books from the library, you should still post your review on a retailer website. One of my goals for the year was to get better at posting my reviews on the Barnes and Noble website, and when I review a book on Goodreads, I make sure to also review it on Barnes and Noble as well. Some people may think that they don’t need to post reviews on retailer websites, but people actually do read those reviews, I know I do. So please try to make an effort and post reviews to retailer websites!
