That will continue to be looked at as needed, and as we Moderators see what is appropriate or not. When you think about it, those threads usually grow as a natural result of reader comment followed by author appreciation, and from actual news related to a book or to circumstances related about an author's professional well-being. Most of those types of threads will die a natural and thankful death, anyway, thank God.
About this thread and with a little humor in my comments:
It was the shameless bumping [like an irritating telemarketer who won't stop calling], or the "HEY! 'Love Bite Magazine' absolutely LOVED my new book and YOU will, too
" type of nonsense that was beginning to irritate some readers here at MobileRead. Hence, the purpose of this thread: Irritate away, writers!
YOU CAN USE THIS THREAD TO TELL US HOW MUCH YOUR "UNCLE BARBARA" (the cross-dressing relative that Aunt Matilda likes to trade clothes with) LOVED YOUR NEW BOOK!
Because, after all, if your relatives love your new book, won't Readers here at MobileRead like it, too?!!
HAVE FUN WRITERS AND READERS!
