Many of the books reviewed on this blog are received from publishers, publicists, or authors for review purposes. There will be a notice at the end of any review or other promotional post stating the provenance of said books as of Dec 2009 in order to comply with new FTC regulations. All Amazon links are required by the Blog Tour groups in which posts they appear and I am not compensated for any purchases made through those links. The Barnes and Noble links throughout this blog are however affiliate links which means I get a very paltry sum if the books are purchased during a session initiated from an affiliate link. Regardless of any affiliate links or other purchase links posted, the books received do not influence my reviews. My reviews have been and will remain my honest opinions. If there seem to be an inordinate amount of "rave reviews" that would be because I drop books like the plague if they don't hold my interest. There isn't time to be wasting with books I have to struggle to finish.
