So here it is in a nutshell:
Companies send me free books and products to try out, then I write an honest review of the product.
They do not pay me with cash, trips to day spas, or buy me new wardrobes.
I write what I believe, although I try to be nice and polite about it if I don't like something or it won't work for my family.
If a product won't work for my family, I try to present ideas of who I think the product might work for.
If I receive a product I've agreed to review, then I will be posting a review of it, but I will be honest.
I try to choose books to review that interest me anyway, because my reading time is limited. So, if many of my book reviews are positive, that's because I chose wisely.
