ometimes (particularly when traveling) I end up with a couple of reviews in the can, waiting for Sunday Review posting. That’s a good feeling.
But sometimes, I end up with a “slow” book. Right now I’m reading a religious book about God and such. It’s a sell, that’s one thing. But it’s also one where I need to pay attention to the points. Outside of fiction (where I go into my groove and read for pleasure), non-fiction (please, no debating this classification) is pretty slow. I’m not reading about Sam Spade breaking heads quick and getting even quicker answers. I’m plodding.
You know I’m short of materials when I’m reviewing an hour radio drama.
So it really worked well that two readers, niece Kirstin Raymond and best-friend Jesse Markowitz, have both sent me reviews. I’d been asking for them on and off and suddenly my email box is full. That’s just great. So this means we’ll have their reviews up in the next two weeks (Kirstin first, because she came in a hair before Jesse). But I’m quite interested in what they read and what they thought about it.
So tool in here on Sunday when we see what sorts of things others are perusing. It should be a blast!
(And if anyone else out there would like to review a book, feel free to send it to RobertRaymond@bellsouth.net and let me know what you love/hate/are bored by. Who knows – maybe you can sell me on something I’d never considered!)
