Ladies and gentlemen, I want to support you as writers and readers. I want to do what I can, in my little ways, to help Lutheran audiences know what’s available from Lutheran brothers and sisters. So, um, I have a GoodReads question for you.
To be honest, I generally read outside “Christian” fiction genres. I read for words and stories and psychological development. Sure, I’d love to read for good theology, too, but happily-ever-afters because God cares about romance . . . I just don’t typically go there. (Not judging those who do.)
So, when I’ve reviewed on GoodReads and Amazon, I’m thankful I can play a little part helping books sell and authors get known. But, even though I’m reading more now, with my twinnies approaching two (whew!), I hardly rate anything unless it’s either super well known or it’s by a Lutheran.
My GoodReads question for you: Does that even make sense? I could help a few more authors if I wrote more reviews. I could do Amazon-only reviews, since I daresay no one’s presuming I only Amazon-shop from Lutherans. Maybe I’m over-thinking it, but wouldn’t it be great to have one more way for me to emphasize Lutherans mid the many authors out there?
You guys, of course, can review whomever. It’s just that I have this Lutheran audience building hope for this/these platform(s).
Surprise, surprise, Mary may be overthinking! 😉 Still, she’s also thankful for the fun freebie books she’s getting from Book Bub! And, they say that the effects on the brain of reading a good book last five days! Here’s hoping those positive effects sink in soon!
