Bad Reviews

by janeeatonhamilton

I have been a naughty blogger without even any cool links to follow.  What can I say?  Summer hit Vancouver.  Summer!  Actually warmth!  Sunshine!  Playing is far more enticing than being a grown-up.

But to follow up on Canada’s reviewing dust-up (see some older post here), herewith the US equivalent, and what I think is a very reasoned and reasonable response on how to negatively review.  I don’t review books any longer, but if I did, I would keep these points pinned above my desk.
