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"
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!

I am preparing a Hub for LetterPile about an author, and if I see traffic improvement, I will add some established and new book reviews of his titles. I would like some feedback on your experience in the new Vertical for books. I did see good results in Dengarden, traffic of over 200 views a day...

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but is it possible to have a Book Reviews category? I have typically written quite a few book reviews on Hubpages and currently have an account dedicated to reviews, so I was wondering if this would be something that's useful to others as well...

I was thinking about writing book reviews as an engine for writing. Does anyone do book reviews on HP? If so, how do you usually go about structuring them to meet HP's quality standards?

Does anybody look at book reviews before reading? I might write some.

Do you just write book reviews about any book you enjoy, to let people know about that book?For instance, I just read a really great fictional series, should I write individual reviews to inspire others to read these?

I've attempted 2 hubs that are book reviews. I enjoyed writing them both, as I love to read, but neither has really gotten any traffic... and the scores are lower than I'm used to seeing. It was my first attempt at book reviews, and I'm wondering if I've missed the mark somewhere.Any...
