Important information and notices for all readers and visitors of 7 Billion Words
A.K.A. the boring legal stuff
The content on this site (including the reviews) is based on my opinion. You may agree, or disagree but please go about doing so respectfully.
If I don’t like a particular book, that doesn’t mean that it’s bad or not worth your time. I encourage all visitors to my site to maintain perspective in looking at reviews whether they be on my site or any platform you come across. We are unique creatures and therefore our interests are unique.
Categories, genre, age, rating, cause, interests, etc. listed on my site were associated based on my personal opinion and may not necessarily reflect the view of the publisher, author, and/or others, in general.
I do not own the rights to any of the books mentioned on my site, all rights go to the respective owners.
I am not the copyright holder of the books and related covers posted on my site. If the copyright holders would like anything to be removed (that they have ownership of), then please reach out to me through email.
The books I review are either purchased (by myself or gifted by a family member), borrowed from the library, or provided by a publisher or author. If a book has been provided by a publisher or author, 7 Billion Words will disclose this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
The path the book has traveled to end up in my possession does not affect my opinion and I provide an honest opinion either way.
No negative criticism of a book is given with the intent to insult any author personally or demean the feat they have accomplished by completing a book. If I did not actually provide my honest opinion, then I could not truly say that I was providing an accurate representation of my opinion which is always my upmost goal when writing a review.
Though I try to remove any errors before content goes live, as a human, I do unfortunately make mistakes. I apologize in advance if you come across an inaccuracies or errors. Please understand that any mistakes are wholly unintentional. No errors are made with the intention of deceiving or falsely informing readers. If you do notice any mistakes or other errors, please feel free to notify me, and corrections with be made as soon as possible!

I am an undergraduate student and not a trained professional, please keep that in mind.
Action + the causes
Within the Action page and the individual review posts, I have linked certain books with attributed “causes.” This is not based on the author’s intentions or purpose of creating the book, merely it is a correlation I have drawn between the book and a topic. The authors of these books do not necessarily support the causes. They also might not have intended for their books to be seen in this way. After reading the story, I personally felt that it could be related to a certain action and that is how the relationship was established.
If you feel that a connection between a novel and an attributed cause/organization/etc. is inaccurate, please feel free to reach out to me to discuss any potential changes.
As far as the causes themselves are concerned, I merely generated a list of causes/organizations/etc. that I thought appeared to be related. I have not done extensively in-depth research! I (or anyone associated with me) are not responsible for anything that happens as a result of interacting with anything listed or linked to on the Action page. I (or anyone associated with me) are also not responsible for any actions that visitors to this site or readers decide or decided to take after visiting or interacting with these sites or anything listed on that Action page, in general. These thoughts are only my opinion and I am only trying to be helpful.
Nothing on this site should be taken as medical advice. These thoughts are only my opinions.
