As a blogger with most of the word literary in my name, I think we can all agree I'm a logical choice to review books for the masses not so terminologically blessed. Whether or not you defy me by not readily agreeing with my assertion, a presumably large number of book publishers and authors' representatives do agree.
After recently becoming inundated with review copies of books*, I decided it was time to stop ignoring my cultural mandate. To this end, I figured I would begin by offering the world some unsolicited but obviously very welcome reviews.
Thus, I offer you my inaugural book review here at LiteralDan: Sue Williams' I Went Walking:
Now, if you're like me, you can't help but be struck by how horrendously grotesque the drawing of that child on the cover is, and you're too terrified to open the book itself.
I'm sure it's a very nice story.
* One copy** is enough to validate this statement-- every flood has to start with a trickle, right?
** It was not this book... I'm still preparing to read the one I was sent. It's only been a month: it's still good, it's still good!
