Where good books are reviewed


That’s Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s “New Book Review” blog. You will find reviews there of books by authors new to you, enlarging your reading horizon.

This past month, Carolyn has had obligations beyond her usual frantic pace, because she has had to care for several people she cares for, because they have had to endure a surgery. All the same, she has squeezed in posting Holli Kenley’s review of Anikó: The stranger who loved me.

This is the hardest book I have ever written, and the one that has won the largest number of awards. It has had many 5 star reviews, but Holli’s assessment taught me things about it that are new to me.

So, it is worth reading. Um… what? The book or the review?

Um to you too. Both of course.

    Good grief! Can you believe that Facebook won’t let me post the link that goes directly to your newsletter post! This is what it looks like: https://bobrich18.wordpress.com/2021/10/10/where-good-books-are-reviewed/ just in case you are wondering! Frankly, I am losing patience with Facebook. I don’t find out until I have written a long post for my Facebook writers!! And it has been lost. You would have loved it! I am telling you this so that you know. Maybe there is some thing you can do with your settings to bypass this peculiarity Facebook has instituted. They say it violates their guidelines!

      A couple years ago now, the idiot Facebook AI decided that a post of mine “violates community standards.” No post of mine would, no post of mine ever has, but their communication channels are very carefully organized so you can never get through to a human to complain.

      A search has led me to several groups of thousands of people in the same situation. The AI is judge, jury and executioner, there is no court of appeal, and it is a life sentence.

      This is one of many reasons to ensure we never enable Facebook to make a cent from us.

      Oh, if I must post a link to Facebook pointing to my blog, I make up a post to http://bobswriting.com with the link within it, and post that. So, if you want to, you can post to one of your blogs, and including the link, and publicize that on Facebook.
