Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about book reviews…
Do you read any non-blogging book reviews? If so, where (newspaper, library etc)? Do you have any favourites sources you’d like to share?
I read a lot of non-blogger book reviews. For work I use professional library journals to pick things out for work, and usually I end up finding a few things for myself as well. When it comes to my personal reading, I read reviews in magazines and newspapers- the New Yorker has great reviews, and The Economist runs good features now and then, such as one they did a year or so ago about international crime fiction, which helped me pick out some great gifts for a thriller-fan in my family. I'm not one to discount so-called "traditional media' and I relish the Books section in the Boston Sunday Globe and the Boston Phoenix. And of course The New York Review of Books is the best of the best for smart book-talk.
