I’m amazed people track these things, but a friend of mine from New Zealand recently posted 11 books about living in Father’s love and grace that have more than 100 5-star ratings on Amazon.com. He Loves Me was on that list. (You can view the entire list here, which includes some of my favorites.) I had no idea. So I checked and found it has 135 5-star rankings from readers. I never think to check on these kinds of things, but I just may have to go there some day when I can find the time and see what others are saying about it.
But I’m blessed that so many of you shared your thoughts about this book with other readers on Amazon. Thank you. I am truly honored and grateful that you took the time to do so, especially since I have never even recommended that people do that for me. That makes it all the more amazing that so many have. (I even know one blog some years ago that begged people to put up negative reveiws to discourage people from reading it. I guess he was the only one that took his advice, because there is only one 1-star review.)
You have no idea, however, how much this helps other readers when they are browsing for books. Not only does it give them a testimonial from another reader, but it is also part of what Amazon uses when it recommends books based on what people are searching for. So if you’ve read a book that really touched you, take the time to post a comment, even a brief one, and give it a rating. The authors you enjoy will really appreciate it.
