GBT Featured Book Review: Justify Thin
Renae Da Grava (Author)
( 1+ Reviews )
Renae Da Grava fills an important niche with Justify Thin, by allowing the reader to find a comfortable and maintainable lifestyle change to help feel healthier. Justify Thin is different than other books about losing weight, because the emphasis is not on fad diets.
Instead, the book is a guide and acts as a kind of personal guru when it comes to being healthy for you. By looking into the reader’s habits and mindset, the audience knows what should change and how to go about taking that change to the next level. Overall differences in lifestyle and in attitude make the changes easier to permanently incorporate into his or her life.
Fad diets and unreasonable exercise routines that may not be a one-size-fits-all are harder to maintain because the body naturally wants to fight against and struggle with things, which do not come easily. Getting in the right mindset is key either way, which is where the justifying of the title comes in. This is explained early on, right on the first page, where Renae Da Grava goes from mysterious, far away author, to personal guru. This is someone who has experiences the trials first hand, and is willing to share those experiences with others.
The activities are easy to follow, and can be repeated as needed. They challenge the audience to really think about how they live and what could be changed in order to live a better life. The reader may want to take notes in order to formulate his or her own plan and keep to it. The author is honest and direct without being preachy, and so anyone could learn from this book. Readers who are looking to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, or simply figure out what might make them feel better should have a copy of Renae Da Grava’s Justify Thin in their personal library. – GoodbooksToday.com Reviews

Getting Your Self-Published Book into the Library, Tips from Librarian Marlene Harris
Interview by Lindsay Buroker, Indie Fantasy Author
Marlene Harris, technical services librarian and Chair of the ALCTS Affiliate Relations Committee.
So, you want to get your self-published book and/or ebook into the library, where lots and lots of new readers can discover you. Me too! That’s why I hunted down librarian Marlene Harris for an interview. First I’ll let her introduce herself:
I am a librarian with more than 15 years experience. I’ve worked in both public and academic libraries all over the United States, from the Chicago Public Library to the University of Alaska Anchorage. I’m currently a consultant, book reviewer and blogger at Reading Reality. I speak to librarians about using the blogosphere to help with collection development, and integrating ebooks into library collections. My take on the best ebook romances for 2011 was posted at Library Journal in December. I currently publish Ebook Review Central every Monday, a service that provides links to reviews and ratings for ebook-only titles from around the blogosphere.
Now for the interview…
Q. Let’s start with the question on every self-published author’s mind: Can we donate copies of our books to local libraries and get them on the shelves? If so, what’s the process? I imagine just dumping them into the donations bin might not be a good idea.
A. This is a terrific question, and it’s one every library gets asked. Sometimes after the fact. Let’s say you are talking about self-published fiction and popular-type nonfiction books, and you want to get them into your local public library.
