A Fun Update



I have come in possession of some Amazon gift cards lately. Let's clear something up, I used the first couple of cards selfishly. Ok? Good, I'm glad that is cleared up. There may or may not be junk shipped from China in my mailbox next month. I learned from my mistakes, so the rest will be put to picking up and reviewing books for the blog.

Reviews will be posted here and on Goodreads. The price will be listed and a reviews will be judged based on content. I'll do my best to keep an eye out for works with few reviews. The lack of reviews tend to scare us away from $2.99, 0.99, or even free, so I'll shake things up.

There's a funny thing about us as consumers, it's not the price that scares us, it's the commitment. If someone genuinely enjoys a product then they'll pay whatever the amount, because they see the value in it. Last month I paid $80 for a primarily digital product. It wasn't my proudest moment.

This experiment will run for October and maybe November. NaNoWriMo will be in full swing, so I may not be reading as much in that time. I want to keep this as a regular thing, as it helps cut out my negative obsessive qualities.

Does once a week sound good? I like the idea.
