Why Reviews

The other day I was talking to my mom, and she asked me what I've read lately. In full disclosure my mother is a published author. She publishes in the LDS fiction genre. She reads a lot of LDS fiction and reviews it on her writer's blog. In the course of the conversation she told me that I should be reviewing every book I read-at least somewhere. Unless the book is a huge name best selling author they don't get much publicity or marketing done on them. Especially in the LDS genre. 
Well this conversation got me thinking. Why not write reviews of what I read. But why stop there? Why not just about anything I could write a review about: books, movies, plays, concerts, restaurants, fast food, video games, internet sites, products... the list could be forever. 
So I don't know what I will all end up reviewing, but it might be fun along the way, and then, at least I'm putting it out there.

  1. Great idea! When you find something you like, or when you even need to vent a little, a review goes a long way. ( Just be careful signing your name to it!) There is so much good in the world that gets so little praise.
