It occurs to me that I spend a lot of time reading. I also spend a lot of time writing. And, as it happens, I’ve posted on this blog – on more than one occasion – information about a book that I’ve read, or that has made its way to me. Plus, the name of this blog site is “Literary Coldcuts on Toasty Buns”, unspecified as to who has written these tasty literary gems…
Thus, I would like to make a small transition to a dual focus. I’d like to make this a writing and reading blog, since I’ve been posting on both for awhile now… though maintaining my “official” writing focus. However, as I’ve heard from many a writer: Great writers need to be great readers, too. So, without further ado, I hereby announce that I will be posting my brief reviews on the books I’ve read, approximately as they are finished.
I’ll include books I’ve purchased, borrowed, or received as review copies. Review copies of books will receive first priority, and I’ll always be sure to give an honest review, regardless of where the book came from. I’ll evaluate both on entertainment and literary merit, and I’ll be nailing down the exact specs for “ratings” as I work out the kinks in the review process.
I’ve been reviewing books for quite some time now over at Librarything.com, but I’d like to share my thoughts with those of you who aren’t members over there (though I highly recommend it!).
As always, I’ll continue to post my thoughts on the writing process as I work toward the completion of my novel… and keep on plugging away at writing SEO articles for web contracts.
Questions? Comments? Leave them here. Looking for something to read and want a recommendation? I’d be happy to help with that too!
And publishers: feel free to send those ARCs my way!
