It has on many levels. Before book blogging, I had never really taken an interest in reading books beyond Big publishing houses but through book blogging learned there existed self-published authors. Authors that just want to get there books out there. To me that says a lot. That these authors are willing to stick their necks out to readers in hopes that we'll love their books. That's bravery. A few of the books I have read that are self-published books are The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen. She sure can write and secretly I'm a one of her I bet many fans (not so secret now). And proud of it. Then there is R.J. Gonzales with his Mundahlia book which I did a review here on the blog.  So yeah, book blogging has changed the way I read. Have grown to discover the world of Indie  and self-published authors.

Hi Cassandra, I stopped by after reading your feature on Tracy's Treasure of Books and saw that you are a participant in the BBAW. yes, I agree. book bloggers have definitely given self published and INDIE houses a place to voice their stories.

Good point, as I would never have looked twice at self-published books and indie houses before I became a blogger!

That's interesting that book blogging helped you laern about self-published books! I don't read many s-p books, but there are a surprising amount of good ones out there.

Blog Graphics: Pictures aren't owned by me that are found on this blog. Most of them can be found via Google/Bing! images or from author press releases and are in no way used for profit. Credit goes to them entirely.

Reviews: Are not given either positively/negatively based on compensation. Reviews are entirely out of speculative opinion. Put out for readers to ultimately make their decision on a book, movie, and or product. They are honest reviews based on opinion. And ultimately I would never falsify information or exaggerate, given I do not see a benefit in doing so.

Affiliate: The blog is monetized through Amazon's Affiliate Associates Program, The Book Depository's Affiliate Program, YesStyle's Affiliate Program, GoHastings Affiliate Program, and a few other programs best seen through the blog's ads. Every little purchase you make, makes, a huge difference to me as a blogger. Buying through the blog's links gives me a small percentage of commissions. I try exceptionally hard to make the links/ads as unintrusive as possible when viewed on the blog. If they are intrusive, I, do so apologize but still hope you can enjoy the actual written reviews.
