First and foremost, I enjoy sharing my opinions, ideas, and news online. That’s what so great about blogging. However, when it comes to blogging, some conflicts of interests may arise. And that’s where this page comes in.
Hello! Nice to meet you, I’m Samantha and I like to blog about books. The books I talk about and review on this blog usually come from different sources, such as:
- the library
- bookstore or website (personal purchase)
- a gift (my family and friends love me and give me things sometimes)
- Reader’s Copy
- Advanced Readers Copy
I do not get paid to write the reviews for the books I have received. Where the book comes from does not influence my opinion of the book or product. I’d feel weird and incredibly guilty if it did.
Often times you’ll find a quick disclosure statement like, “I received this book from [so and so] in exchange for an honest review”. That’s me letting you know how/why I received the book.
In addition to reading copies, I also use affiliate links to generate revenue for myself. I’m a broke college graduate. The little revenue I make could go a long way! Whenever I include links in book reviews, affiliate links will be used. The affiliate links I use include:
- Book Depository
The fact that I use affiliate links doesn’t influence my opinion on the books, etc. either. I could totally hate the book/product (or love it) and still provide affiliate links.
As of right now, I do not write sponsored posts, but if I ever do, there will be an update to this page and the needed disclosure in the post itself.
That’s it for now. Thanks so much for reading this long (and probably boring) page, but I wanted you all to be in the know. If you have any questions or concerns, please send me an email.
