Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

A little lazy to take a pic, lol.

Quick thank you to Mariana for The Splash Award!

There is a great blog makeover contest going on! You should definitely check it out! It will end on January 20/10!

What you can win:

  • A custom blog theme/template for selfhosted Wordpress or Blogger (no Wordpress.com, sorry, it’s not possible).
  • With up to 15 credits in istockphoto images for the design (if you want more images, you’ll have to purchase them).
  • And up to 3 revisions of the blog sketch!
  • You will also get a 125 x 125 px banner for it!

Important Guidelines

  • The design will include fonts that are free for commercial use (but you can choose to buy yourself a professional one, there’s some really cheap ones).
  • The theme/template will include a credit link in the footer.
  • The prize does not include plugin customization, or anything like that outside the theme itself. Uploading content to the blog is your responsability.
  • If you have images you want included in the design, you must own them, or have a license for them. Using images right out of Google or other places won’t be possible.
