The BookBlogger Hop is hosted by Billy from Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer every weekend. Basically, if you blog about books, answer a question provided and if you link to their post in your blog, you can add your blog to their list of participants. This week’s question is:
How do you turn down a review request?
Generally, I don’t. However, if I do, I tell the requester the truth – usually it’s that I’m busy and don’t have the time to read/review a book. If it’s for a blog tour or something, which actually just happened to me with the Blind Sight blog tour, I volunteer to participate in some other way, like posting an excerpt for the tour instead of a review. Either way, I always try to be especially cordial in my responses because it’s easy to come across as rude via email.
