Since I’m on the writing end of things now, I really get just how difficult — at times impossible– it feels to write. Therefore, I’ve decided to become an promoter of my favorite writers, and my Wednesday Reads falls easily into this new inclination. While perusing Twitter, I came across a wonderful blog post by Judy Hedlund speaking on the very topic of readers promoting their favorite books. Since many of you are always suggesting books to me, I thought you might like to know how you can spread the word about great books to your world. There are some great ideas and probably ones you didn’t know about too.
