Posts Tagged ‘bookshelves’

When I want to write something I don’t look at the bookshelves in the stores to see what’s popular now.  I write what I want to write.  This is how every artist, singer or writer in the world expresses themselves.  If I wrote what is popular now and then try to get it published, by the time it sees the bookshelves, which is over a year later, those topics or genre is no longer popular.

Readers today will look up books by popularity and read reviews on Goodreads or Amazon.  This little tool of reading reviews has saved me many times from buying the wrong product.  How ingenious it is to have a place where we can read what other people thought of the book or product before we decide to read or buy.

But there is another side where readers don’t trust complete strangers on the internet to give them advice to read a book.  So what do they do?  They ask their friends and family members.  They ask librarians or teachers.  They research a book’s quality by doing a lot of leg work.  Sounds tiring huh?

It starts small…

The only thing left is to trust the reviews online.  Surely, over a hundred people can’t be wrong about a book, right?

So write what you want to write.  Sooner or later they will find your book, and either love it or hate it, and let everyone else in the world know about it.

Expressive and Emotional word content... poetic justice... my thoughts are perceptive, occasionally subjective but always dimensional. My career lies in psychology and my mind lies in philosophy. To question and ponder is to reflect. I am both reflective and directive. I never walk with caution as our steps need their footprints. I love this journey we call life.
