After a little forum banter about review sites awarding badges for people to add to their blogs, Michael Brookes, author, games developer and all round nice bloke, designed the above badge for my blog. Thanks, Michael. You make me feel like a real reviewer!
Many review sites actively solicit free copies of books for review and some have a number of reviewers, each with a genre specialism. I just review the books I choose to read and even in cases where I've seen a preview copy, I buy the book so that I feel I can review it on the same basis as any other reader. So - I make no claims other than that if the book is here, I've enjoyed reading it enough to want to pass the good news on to other people.
If you've had a book reviewed on this blog, then help yourself to a badge! If you're able to copy it from here, please do so. If you want to get one emailed to you, please get in contact. Go on, make my day! ;)
