Author Rebecca Johnson tells all about her
experiences as an amazon.com Top Reviewer.
July 7, 2017
Internationally renown reviewer Rebecca Johnson has
been profiled in the Wall Street Journal and the L.A. Times. She
has also appeared on King 5 TV in Seattle. Today she has announced
her first book on reviewing for those who are curious about the
mysterious world of Amazon's Top Reviewers.
"Amazon reviewing is now a lifestyle not just a
hobby. I am on a mission to bring awareness to excellent books and
products that enhance your life," said Rebecca Johnson,
author of Reviewing as a Lifestyle.
Readers have had a lot to say about this book:
"When I saw this book I immediately bought it, because I've
never seen a book on this subject before, and I honestly wondered
what it is like to be a top reviewer and what kind of experiences
the author has had." ~ Angela Reads
"Overall, an excellent book about a woman who
loves to review all sorts of products. She is a very positive
reviewer. It is not a manual on how to write a good review, but,
rather, it talks about her experiences. Great job!" ~
"I give Reviewing As A Lifestyle five stars
because the book is an outstanding, unique, book every author,
every publisher, and every reviewer at Amazon should read." ~
Rebecca's reviewing lifestyle had unassuming origins:
she first started reviewing after seeing a book promoted on Oprah
in 2000. But by 2002 she had reached the #3 rank in Amazon's
brutally competitive reviewing system, with 864 reviews to her
name. She is a member of Amazon's own "Hall of Fame" for
reviewers who made it into the top 10. Now, in 2017, she has reviewed over 6,800 products,
including 3,145 books. She continues to read around 185 books a
year and is on the eternal quest to find memorable ones.
Some of the books she has reviewed include Joel
Osteen's Fresh Start which she found to be inspiring. She
gave The Amazon Way by John Rossman a five-star rating.
Daniel Gilbert's Stumbling on Happiness also made her laugh
a lot. One of her discoveries was The Light in the Heart by
Roy T. Bennett which she says is positive encouragement for the
soul. Rebecca loves to find books that change the world and Amazon
is full of surprises.
"Amazon's willingness to venture into uncharted
territory is very exciting for the consumer," says Rebecca.
"Jeff Bezos has one of the most brilliant minds of our time.
I'm so happy I got to hear him speak at the amazon.com
headquarters in Seattle. I can't wait to see what he comes up with
Rebecca is the author of five other books including, Seasoned
with Love: A collection of best-loved recipes inspired by over 40
cultures, Angelique (a romance novel), Moonflower
Dreams (poetry), What To Do When Feeling Blue, and Collected
Quotes: Over 300 quotes to inspire and enlighten. Her own
favorite quote is by Stephen Richards: "To dream by night is
to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen."
And what are her dreams?
Like so many of us Rebecca dreams of a world without
hunger. But the question is what to do about it. "I know on a
global scale it is such a small thing," Rebecca says,
"but my wish is that everyone would sponsor a child through
World Vision. It is such a great cause for good in the
One of her lesser dreams is to drive a 1969 Chevrolet
Chevelle convertible in Monaco Orange to the ocean while listening
to her favorite CD, Evening Ocean's The Kiss, which she calls
romantic electronica because it produces an "in love"
