Reviews reviewed

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

If you have written reviews and would like to give and receive hints for improvement, join this group. Only members can post comments.

We focus on the review rather than the reviewed book, on the language of the review rather than the reviewer's opinions. Among other things, this is a place you can try out, polish and refine your review before or after posting it.

To keep things tidy, when you start discussion of a review you should start a new thread for that review, unless you have a good reason not to.

If you want to discuss the merits of a review or the reviewed book, you might like the Review Discussions group. If you want to discuss the reviewing process and the philosophy of reviewing, try Book reviewers.
