    7. Yes

  2. 1. Not sure but not many. Less than 10.
    2. 2-3. I get a lot of ARC copies with deadlines, which slows down my reading of other books.
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes.
    5. No.
    6. Don't know. Probably not. But I review every book I read to completion.
    7. Depends on the author and the book. If I really liked the book, then hell yes.

    2. Probably up to 30 now
    3. Unless they are awful. 2 not finished - 1 awful writing, 1 awful scenario (not my taste, should have read the preview)
    4.same as 3.
    5. If anything the other way round. Thanks for making it free, here's a review. If I've paid it's probably got loads of reviews already.
    6. No
    7. You mean in the book? I do that so I assumed everyone did. I Follow if I like the book.

    Interesting questionnaire - made me think about it a bit!
