Madeline L’Engle. Face review today!
First of all, though, want a hint for checking out books as a reviewer? Ask me what what I learned in three years as a book reviewer for Pathways Magazine.
“Read the first page because it will tell you so much about the writer’s message, where the book is aimed, the ability to convey that message, and the writer’s overall skill. Check out the jacket and interior design, tip-offs to professionalism.
“Then go back to the writer’s first page and read between the lines. Is it all about “I want to be a writer and have a book” or do you find something more worthwhile?
