This looked like fun so I thought I'd play. Go to Coffee Addicted Writer's site to link-up or find other folks who are playing. Each week a question is asked. This week's question is: How do you turn down a review request? My answer is: It depends. If I have a relationship of some sort with the author, then I politely say that I'm too busy or not in the mood for that type of book or something that doesn't directly disparage the writer or book. If I get an unsolicited request in my email or an unsolicited book in my snail mail box, I respond if I am interested; ignore it if I'm not.
