Describe How You Shop for Books
I’m a creature of habit. If I find something I like or a method of doing something that works for me, I continue with that. I’m cheap, so the less expensive a book is the better. I’m also busy, so I like easy. Those things affect how I shop for books.
One company I shop from sends me emails occasionally with bargain books and free shipping. That’s two of my favorite words in one email: bargain and free. When I receive this email I always browse through what’s available and usually purchase at least one book.
My most common method of shopping is through word of mouth. If someone, whose opinion on books I trust, tells me about a title, it normally makes it to my list of books to read.
I don’t think books can get any better advertisement than one reader’s glowing reviews.
If you’ve read a book that you enjoy, particularly if it was self-published or published by a small press, write a review and post it, I promise you the author will greatly appreciate it. You will probably make their day!
