One thought on “[links] Link salad for a travel day

    About the “book reviews”: I read them all and IMO, the reviewer writes as well as she thinks YOU do. This is not in defense of you, though I did enjoy “Green” in many ways and am currently greatly enjoying Escapement. She rarely uses reasons; instead, she uses value judgments, more personal preferences than any literary values. I won a First Award once because I had painted my piece purple and the judge loved purple. That was it. And it was a very hollow First Place win. This reviewer is in the same class as that judge.
    Of course, that’s just MY review of her qualifications. 🙂
