The schedule kind of crapped out at the end of the week. I had a tour book which just completely failed for me. I didn’t like any of the characters, I didn’t feel for anyone, and I just didn’t want those people taking up residence in my head. It happens. The tour operator wanted me to post a promo, and I just don’t do promos unless I’ve either already read the book (and liked it) or I have a relationship with either the author or the tour company. I do stuff for TLC Book Tours all the time because they generally have terrific books and they are just incredibly nice to work with as well as being thoroughly professional about the whole business.
Promos are so tempting, because there’s almost no work involved on the part of the blogger, but, it’s just not a temptation I want to give in to. I started this blog because I wanted to share books I enjoyed, and because I wanted to write. Too many promos, and promos for books I hated, just don’t fit into that.
But what do you think? Do you like to see lots of promos? Or what are you looking for when you read a book blog? This inquiring mind really wants to know!
