the art of reviewing

Side note: it's a testament to the reigning power of art and of stories that I spent all of Monday in mourning for Sybil, a character on Sunday night's Downton Abbey.

Here's a little gem on the art of reviewing by Charlie Baxter: Owl Criticism. In a time where you can scroll down to see reviews on nearly any book on Amazon, Baxter (in his characteristic dry humor) pokes fun at just what these reviewers are basing their ideas on. Everyone's got an opinion, but that doesn't mean you need to listen to them.
