Book Reviews forbidden?

    I found an author I really, really liked and wrote a hub about the three books of his I read. Then it only made sense to link to a place to read more about them or buy them; since we do Amazon on here, that's what I did. But now I read this on Word Play's 'make money writing hubs' hub:

    IMPORTANT: DO NOT click the AdSense ads on your own hubs or blogs, or incorporate ads or other text that encourages people to click on them.

    I've read that before but now I realize that's what a book review would be doing! Do I have to take off the links to those three books?

    You are taking it too far. What is prohibited is using the lines like "click here" or "visit our sponsors" smile

    Thanks for clearing that up Misha. I have a couple of these and will have more so after reading the OP I was thinking oh no did I do something wrong. Cool to know that I'm good to go.

      Misha you are a fine looking man. Please! I have trouble imagining the driving king in drag! Even as an angel!
      How about another avatar mate!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Misha! I love to read, love to share and discuss what I read but my 15 year old son isn't interested in hearing it - then I got worried that I couldn't rave about my favorites here either. What a relief, hmmm, Lynne?

    I am certainly happy. Starting one tonight that I will surely be reviewing after the weekend. Anyone else read Drood yet?

    Now I'm confused. I wrote an article offering tips for a first pageant. I described the type of shoes the little girls wear and posted an amazon ad with that type of shoe. Is that against the rules??

    Thanks in advance!

      No, not at all.  You can write a Hub about a specific product and include an ad for it, no problem.  What you're not allowed to do is use phrases like "click here!!!" or "visit our sponsors" as Misha said.
