Do you have a bookshelf that looks like this?
Either way, you need a system to be able to figure out what you are going to read next and so does your child. Hence the idea of book recommendations. I rely a lot on recommendations because I value my time. I especially like when there are those stars and I can quickly glance and see if the book is something that I want to read. I won't waste my time if there is a book with just one star, but I am certainly convinced more if there are five.
I don't put all of my eggs into the rating system, but it does certainly create more interest for me. You too can help people and teach your child to help people with choosing the next great book they may be considering reading.
I like to leave feedback on www.shelfari.com. This is a nice website by Amazon that actually shows a bookshelf with books that you have read and you can write a review here. You may be thinking that you are not sure how write a book review. If that is you, then do not fret. I am here to help you out.
How to write a book recommendation
Write whether you enjoyed the book or not.
Explain why you enjoyed the book.
What was your favorite or the part that you connected with the most.
Who should read this book and how will it benefit him/ her.
That's it, it is that easy. You can practice writing a book review in the comments section, I would love to see what I need to put on my bookshelf to read next. Your opinion matters to me. I would also like to know what books I need to put on my children's bookshelf, so list those reviews as well.
