Musing Mondays

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?

Well, I must admit, I'm a bit back-half-asswards on this particular topic.

You see, I don't read reviews at all until after I've read the book. Then I'll read any review I can find just to compare opinions. The problem with reading them before-hand is I feel like I've already read the book while I'm reading it. Maybe it's just me...

If I should find the New York Times Book Review or Publishers Weekly lying around at work I'll read reviews of books that I have no intention of reading (my mind has never been changed). Or books that I know I'll never have the time for (I'm an incredibly slow reader).

There is a nice magazine called BookMarks that I like to pick up from time to time. It has little short, one paragraph, type of reviews or synopsises (spellcheck says that's right, I'm not convinced). That can be fun. There's about a million in each issue. Well, maybe not a million, but a lot!
