Many thanks to all those who have read the reviews I’ve posted so far, and to those who have signed up to follow this blog.
The reviews I’ve posted up to now have been backfilling, I suppose. I have over 630 reviews on my LibraryThing site, but quite a few of those are short and superficial. Some were written from memory of a book I read five, ten or even twenty years before. Now, if a book makes that sort of impression on me, then it deserves something written about it; but that won’t necessarily be of lasting value.
What i’ve posted up to now are the substantial reviews, or (in the case of some of the shorter ones), reviews that had something significant to say despite their brevity. Think of it as “The best of Robert’s reviews”.
From now on, I’ll only be posting reviews as and when I finish a book and have something worthwhile to say about it. So for those of you who have opened their inboxes in trepidation of another fifteen or so new post notifications, you can now relax! Everyone else, please don’t expect the same frequency of posts as you’ve seen up to now. Normal service is commencing…. now!
And don’t forget my blog, Steer for the deep waters only…
