Lisa Shea (lisashea) | 188 comments I need to warn that Amazon explicitly looks for "trading reviews" and discounts them at best and deletes them at worst. So this is a dangerous area to work in :).

It's much better to simply review books you enjoy and then to ask others to do the same.

Ryan O Williams | 5 comments Thanks Lisa! I have removed it. Didn't know that was against TOS.

Lisa Shea (lisashea) | 188 comments Here is a good article by Forbes on the issue of Amazon striving to maintain the integrity of their system. Amazon wants to ensure that all reviews are by readers who honestly feel a certain way about what they've read.

I feel fairly strongly that all reviews on Amazon should be honest and accurately reflect the poster's full thoughts on the item in question. Reviews shouldn't be a publicity tool. There are marketing areas for that.

If a book wants great reviews, it should earn them :).
