Book Reviews and policy

Dear Reader,
I read an eclectic assortment of genres and, if I honestly enjoy what I've read, share the positive reviews. 
Leanne

Dear Author,
You are most welcome to send your book(s) to me. But I only write positive reviews. If I can't find enough nice things to say I won't write anything at all.
