Book Review Policy

In the words of Frederick Douglass, I like big books, and I cannot lie.

I am excitedly accepting books for review!

What you need to know:

  1. Opinions in the book review are  m i n e . Not yours. Though we may agree.
  2. Do not ask me for a review if you seek blind praise.
  3. I reserve the right to not finish a book. Life is too short to spend it finishing books you don’t want to. If I’m still not into the story by page 54, I’m done. But I will still review those pages.
  4. If you need the review within a particular time frame, please say so in your initial message, and I will tell you if I can accommodate you. Otherwise, I will take my own sweet time.
