Here's the Wall Street Journal review that enticed my interest in THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson.
A side benefit of reading reviews is you can learn how to talk about books. For example, I'm just starting to work with a very very beginning writer who has a non-fiction book in her. We're working on how to describe her story. One of her "assignments" from me is to read multiple reviews of a book and see what works, and what doesn't in making the book sound enticing.
There are two other reviews of THIS BOOK IS OVERDUE: one in the Boston Globe, the second in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Which of the three is most enticing to you, and why?
And if you've read the book, I'd like to hear what you think of it.
