will never post book reviews on his blog.
I never post book reviews, and I never intend to. I know that book reviews are a staple of the blogosphere and I could get free books sometimes if I were willing to review them.
I hate writing book reviews. I just won't do it. There are lots of reasons.
But, one of the main reasons I will never post a book review on this site is because I don't ever want to give anyone the idea that reading my review is a substitute for reading the book!
And, now I need to be honest: that's the attitude I take toward book reviews on other people's blogs. If I see a review of a book with which I am marginally interested, I say to myself: oh, good, I can read this review and save myself from taking the time to read the book.
