Where Do You Fall On The Book Critic/Book Champion Continuum?
A complete navel-gazer today…
A pure book critic focuses on evaluation. A pure book champion focuses on promotion. Both are important for different reasons. I love that both exist.
Here’s where I’d put myself:
I write reviews (critic), but not for books I don’t care for. I like sharing books I’m enjoying on social media – often books that I don’t end up giving a full review here (champion).
Where do you fall on the critic/champion continuum?
