The New Book Review


THE NEW BOOK REVIEW by Carolyn Howard-Johnson - embodies the new idea that a book should not be judged by its cover or its press. If a reviewer thinks a book is great, The New Book Review lets readers know about it. Please submit your own favorite review. It makes no difference whether you're an author, reviewer or reader, I want to post your favorite reviews. See guidelines. And please note: It was named to Online Unversties' 101 Best Blogs for Readers.

The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.

There is a review today: 8/13/12 on Seasons of the Vineyard by Catherine MacDonald. Please check it out today.

On August 15th, please visit The New Book Review for The Dog Men by Patricia Crandall. My grandson, age 14, read it and really liked it. It's a book that is good for that age group and adults.

Please tell your friends to join my blog and also Carolyn Howard-Johnson's blog. We keep you informed.

Ampersands: Pretty Is as Pretty Does

By Carolyn Howard-Johnson
