Important information and notices for all readers and visitors of 7 Billion Words. (AKA the boring legal stuff)

Disclaimers

Opinions

The content on this site, including the reviews are 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. Please do your own research before reading this book or giving it to someone else.

Copyright

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.

 

Privacy

FTC Guidelines

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 my honest opinion either way.

 

 

Criticism

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. This is a book review site and if I did not actually provide my honest opinion then my site would be somewhat pointless.

Mistakes

As a human, I make mistakes, and though I try to remove any errors before content goes live sometimes things get missed. Please understand that these mistakes were unintentional. No errors were made with the intention of deceiving or falsely informing readers. If you do notice any mistakes, I sincerely apologize. Please feel free to notify me of any errors that you come across.

 

Honesty

All reviews published are honest and as unbiased as possible. If a book is received from a publisher or author, I will need to state that I received the book for free, though.

Spoilers

The reviews on this site may contain spoilers. Personally, I don’t care for spoilers so I try not to include them in my reviews. However, what I consider to be a spoiler and what someone else might consider to be a spoiler could be different.

Intentions

I find it is best to make my intentions explicitly clear so as not to unintentionally deceive:

7 Billion Words is a book review site that hopes to help our readers save time and money while also encouraging a love of reading by providing reviews and recommendations.

We also try to connect readers with an interest or cause that they are passionate about in the hopes of encouraging them to take action and better their community and world. The list of links provided is not comprehensive, merely a starting point. 7 Billion Words is also not responsible for the content on any of these sites nor are we affiliated with them in any way. All readers are encouraged to do thorough research and seek the opinion and approval of a parent, guardian, medical provider, etc. in regard to any community service project they decide to pursue. We are not responsible for anything that happens as a result of visiting or interacting with this site. We are also not responsible for anything that happens as a result of the actions readers decide or decided to take after visiting or interacting with our site. Nothing on this site should be taken as medical advice. These thoughts are only my opinions.

I am a high school student and not a trained professional, please keep that in mind.

Action

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 in-depth research! I (or anyone associated with me) am 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) am 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.

I am a high school student and not a trained professional, please keep that in mind.

Please do your own research!

Interviews

We apologize but interviews requests are not guaranteed approval. 7 Billion Words may turn away authors of content that we feel is unsuitable for our site, usually (but not limited to) explicit literature.
