  1. What a cute post, Mary! And very true . . .

    I have been pondering a post on the disturbing growth of hostility between some readers and some writers in online forums. A trend, I should say, that I will never get because, as you so correctly point out, what would we do for books without our authors????

    • As readers, our lives would be boring without authors to create worlds for us to visit, characters who feel like friends, and mysteries to solve. I am thankful everyday for them and for the fact that I know how and love to read.

  2. I should have added: I’m working on all six today. I gave a book to a birthday girl. I bought some books (when I’ll read them I don’t know), and I’m about to post a new review on my blog . . . so three down and three to go.

    • You are definitely doing your part. I am going to write one to two reviews today, so I’m working towards achieving them too. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, it means a lot.

  3. Mary, these are great! And I love all of your suggestions. Thank you so much for all the things you do to support authors. And thank you for supporting the Kay Driscoll mysteries. 🙂

  4. Hi, I love your post on ways to support authors! I would love to add a link to your blog post in my upcoming blog on Friday. Please email me if you have any questions or would rather I not link to you. Thanks so much for promoting ways we can all help out!

  5. This post was such a nice reminder, and one I appreciate. I’m still figuring some of this out as a reviewer – especially how, with very limited time, to “feature” a book I love beyond just posting a review in half a dozen places and tweeting about it.

    • Thanks. I know that it is hard to find the time to read and review along with everything going on in our lives. Not only is it tough to find the time, but it’s hard to think of extra things to do. But every little thing we do as readers and reviewers helps more than we may know. Thanks for stopping by and please come again.
