Because you can't judge a book by its cover

The Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference is going to be held April 13-17th. Right after I started blogging I was smart enough (okay, at the time I had no idea how helpful it would turn out to be but thank goodness I attended) to attend the online conference. At the conference I have learned how to contact publishers to get books to review, what publishers are looking for when it comes to review sites (it is not all about the numbers) and I met some amazing bloggers that I keep in contact with.

This year’s Conference will be covering everything from what publishers are looking for to emerging trends in the review world. There are forums to get a critique of your site and/or reviews. This Conference is amazing and the best part is, I get to sit in my pajamas at home! Publishers have donated books so every blogger who attends get to choose from the great selection of titles offered. (They are currently taking up a large amount of space on the floor in my spare bedroom floor.)

From the invite:

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
Graphic Ratings*

1 = kissing
2 = kissing, some fondling
3 = descriptive stripping but no sex
4 = sex scene but not descriptive in details
5 = full descriptive sex scene

*I am rating a specific book by an author, not the author's style. If I am aware an author writes a specific way, I will let you know.
