Reading. It’s awesome.
I didn’t always read, but that changed in June of 2013. I dropped the unnecessary stuff and picked up the awesome stuff–like reading! I started posting my reviews on Amazon and within a few months rose to the top 0.1% of reviewers. My reviews then went to Goodreads, and now my blog (https://ryandejonghe.wordpress.com) and Twitter (@Ryan_Reads).
If you are reading this, why not leave a comment or send me a note? I love talking to other folks about books and my reviews.
Publishers and authors, feel free to drop me a note if you want me to review your book. I usually stick to mainstream publishing, but I’ll consider anything. If I review your book, I’ll give you a fair and thorough review and let you know when the review goes live. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: You may see some links to Powell’s and Amazon on some of my older reviews. I thought this would be a great way to support my voracious reading appetite, but after more consideration, I am no longer using those links. I want to encourage buying local–visit your independent book stores. There’s much to love right around the corner.
