Does any one write book reviews to publish on Hub pages? Is this allowed? It is something I enjoy doing for fun, and since I am trying to build up my content on Hub Pages, I thought I might publish a few here.
I'd like to know too. I already post book reviews on my personal blog but It'd be great to know that answer to this question.
Thanks for asking it. ;-)
Zach, I have published a couple of book reviews for Hub Pages. Admittedly, my traffic has not been great. I tend to lead more towards graphic novels, sci-fi and sports writing, as opposed to mainstream fiction, though. My only question has been whether we are allowed to use images of the books on our hubs. I have been photographing the covers of the books with my IPad and pasting them. Hope I helped to answer your question and maybe you can help answer mine. I look forward to reading your reviews.
I admit I hadn't thought of that. My Plan was to use Amazon. If I remember correctly, Amazon Affiliates can use a picture, that has an link in it. I used to do this on another site a while back, though , I was never actually sure if it was allowed.
There are plenty of people here who post reviews of various things (including me). Like cbunch11 said, your traffic might not be great, but it's definitely allowed. So, go ahead and put some of yours up, and see how they do.
About using images, too - using images from a product in a review of that product would be covered by Fair Use. So, I'm pretty sure it's fine.
Awesome Dallas, Thank you.
I guess Fair Use is sorta what I was counting on, though it is nice to hear someone else say it.
Dallas, I appreciate your response on Zach's question. I hope you are correct about the Fair Use. I will have to test the waters.
Yes, I've confirmed that an image, say, of a book cover, as long as it is not high res, identifies the book and helps promote it, and is therefore fair use. Copying an illustration from inside the book would not be.
Yes, it is allowed, and I'm working on two of them right now. From what I've heard, they don't get a lot of reads and are not very high paying. But follow your bliss!
(I'll actually be reviewing books that have also been made into movies, too. That might get a few more reads.)
Hub Pages is a great place to post reviews. I like to write all kinds of reviews and have several posted here. Products, movies, television, and other things need reviews just as much as a book does.
