Random Thursday - Review Me Baby!

It's always fun to read other people's reviews. Our "Recently Reviewed" Bookletter is one of the most popular lists we have, with over 300 subscribers! That's where we collect some of the most recent reviews that library users have written and put in the library catalog.

Amazon reviews are catching some press recently. There's a blogger out there who lists "One Star Reviews" of popular or classic works.

Then there's a great article from the Wall Street Journal that wonders what people would have written about the classics, if Amazon had been around... ("Deuteronomy"—Average Reader's Rating: Three stars. I don't get it. I've read most of the books in this series, and they totally kick butt, but this one leaves me scratching my head. Is there a story here?...")

Have you ever put a book or movie review in the library catalog? It's easy, and you might show up in the Recently Reviewed Bookletter!
