Well, the authors of those books that are presented for the review team to read and review need our appreciation and support apart from the review we give them. And I think Scott also needs our gratitude so that we could expert more of the good works from him.

I am a recent reviewer in this group. I've read and reviewed 6 books so far. All have been top notch books that I really enjoyed reading. I am a nonfiction junkie so the one I just finished, The Cult Next Door, was my favorite so far. It is absolutely a fascinating and engrossing read that I'll be thinking about for a long time.

Great post. I can't believe the percentage of Americans not reading. It's so high. There's something special about reading that you can't get from any other media. This site is a gem.

One thing that comes instantly to mind is Solaris Seethes. I would never have even thought of reading the book until I read the onlinebookclub review. It peaked my interest and when I started reading it I really could not put it down. It is without a doubt the best e-book I have ever read! So I say a great "Thank you" to this site!

I love the idea of the shop by cover page. The cover of a book is essential to me, and if I'm in a bookstore, I definitely shop by the look of the cover.

I thank you Scott and each one of you here. It is a wonderful community and I am learning as well as enjoying a lot.

I recently read The Unbound Soul by Richard Haight because of recommendations by readers and reviewers. It has helped me personally.

Thank you to everyone who has made this site possible. Being a homemaker, I finally have time to sit down and read and enjoy books, as a new college student eager to get my Bachelor's in English, this site has greatly helped me to see that I honestly still have so much learning to do, while I love to read, reviewing the books and seeing my mistakes and having someone constructively criticize me has opened my eyes.
Thank you Scott. Thank you to all the authors who submit their books. Thank you to all the reviewers and members. And to the editors, thank you for your constructive criticism.

I’m so grateful I found this site. Pressing Flowers by Katie Blanchard and Seven at Two Past Five are both great books I’ve read because of recommendations from reviewers here. I can’t believe that so many people miss out on the joy of reading!

I feel I have really grown in writing by using this site. Also, I have read many, many books I would not have otherwise chosen because of reviews here. I look at covers, and without a review, I sometimes skip over them. For example, the books "Gardening With Guns" and " From Liberty to Magnolia" are among those that I have recently read and I'm am so glad I did.

I also feel I know much more about the world in general because of the diversity of the books here. More general knowledge, more inspiration from others' experiences, and more connections with other book lovers. Thank you for this site!

Beneath the covers of books, our inner world is opened to new adventures. Thanks to all authors for the adventures. A big one to you Scott for bringing up together this community of book lovers. My gratitude to all reviewers as well, that includes myself.
