Source information

On my book reviews and quick thoughts I post the source of a book. It’s pretty self explanatory but just so everyone is on the same page.

Bought: I purchased this book for myself.
I borrowed a copy from my local library
The author/publisher/Netgalley:
I received the book in exchange from the author/publisher for an honest review.
Freebie: I downloaded the book as a free promotion on (most likely) Amazon or the author’s website.
Gift: The book was a gift to me from a family member or a friend.

If it doesn’t fall into one of those basic categories, I’ve likely explained it on the post. Leave a comment on the post if I didn’t explain it.

If I have mistakenly posted something of yours and you would like it taken down, please contact me and I will take care of the situation as quickly as possible.
