When it comes to LT (and your blog), do you review every book you read? Do you just review Early Reviewers or ARCs? Do you review only if you like a book, or only if you feel like you have to? How soon after reading do you post your review? Do you post them other places- other social networking sites, Amazon, etc.?
I've been writing reviews of ARCs since I moved to Blogger this summer and started accepting review copies from publishers outside of LibraryThing. I post reviews as soon as possible after reading the book, including non-ARCs that I've really enjoyed. I put each review on several sites, such as LT, Amazon.ca. , Chapters.ca, Barnes & Nobles, Powell's Books, and Goodreads. I like the publicist or author to feel that they're getting good exposure.
BUT...I am not enjoying blogging about books as much as I did when I simply recommended good books with a sentence or two and a starred rating. This is what I did for years and I have to return to doing so because my personal circumstances haven't allowed me to do much for some weeks now.
I am disabled by poor health and confined at home. I require professional assistance just to bathe and dress. I have a lot of time on my hands but reading is the only activity I can engage in. I read an average of a book each day, except at those times when my mind is mush. Pain prevents me from spending long stretches at the computer and is not conducive to creative thinking either. So no more full reviews from me. Good fiction reading recommendations , doing reading challenges, commenting, and answering questions is all I can manage . I hope my readers will continue to ask about and recommend good books. And I will still have giveaways now and then.
