When you receive exceptional service from a waitress or waiter, do you leave a tip? I bet that even if the server is not on their game that day or just someone who should look for another occupation, you still leave a tip.
Leaving book reviews are tips for the author. It works the same way. If the book was something you want all your friends to read and you just couldn’t put it down, you leave a great review. Even if you think this person should give it up and find another way to express themselves, you should still leave a review.
A kind, you didn’t much like the story or the was it was presented is still a small tip for that author.
Large or small, author’s love receiving reviews.
Don’t forget to tip your author!
