I don't do read for reads, they are pointless they are as silly and as stupid as vote-trading, what's the point of getting all those reads and votes if they are hollow and the person never really read them, with the only the intent of getting their book read? I'd rather get a comment saying why someone hated my book and pointed out what they disliked about it then 100 fake ones saying something nice, that they didn't mean. Votes, reads and comments are all real nice *if* they are real. 

I will only critique books on here, in Ccircle or WordPress blog. So don't ask otherwise.

I don't do reviews as I don't think I'm qualified enough to give a good one, I'd probably slide into giving a critique.
/facepalm

I'm busy with my own book atm, so probably will say no.

Beware of other writing apps (or fake publishing websites), especially ones that claim they will get you published if you are liked by the readers. Read any publishing contracts that they have, if they try to make a worlds rights grab without giving anything in return (usually far less than what they are worth, due to greed. This is where your books are sold worldwide, a writer's agent would never let the publisher take control of those, those are yours to keep!)

Never sign anything without a writing attorney! Have them explain what the contract says. Don't just give away the rights to your copyright!
