I have no words but just to say that I DISAGREE with this post. Authors don't owe reviewers anything and the same that reviewers don't owe authors anything. 


When Neil Gaiman said GRR was not the readers' bitches - this is what reviewing is about. Authors offer a product to be reviewed. Readers review and discuss the book. We all love to share and talk about books. This is what reviewing is about - it is not about what recognition or things you can get and I think many reviewers will agree with me.
