Hmmmm, it appears we are divided on the length and detail of reactions! Other important parts of a review post appear to be a reader rating, genre, and links to other reviews.
Things that don't seem to be important to you my readers are: long summary, author information, publisher information, book trailers, publishing date, movie tie-ins or the first line.
So, what do you think? Did that all shake down like you expected? It appears that the stuff I've included in my review information has been pretty much right on. Cool.
Ending stats: I spent probably 15 hours on Bloggiesta. I didn't really do the mini challenges... sorry about that. I did look at them all and learn from them though, which is a good thing. I did try to comment on a bunch of new bloggers blogs, but I probably only did a handful like 15 or so. I enjoyed the overall enthusiasm, the Twitter chat, and seeing all the stuff everyone else was doing. Let's do it again! Hopefully I'll be around for the next one in June.
Meanwhile, I've been trying to read too. I'm completely immersed in Robert Jordan's The Eye of the World. And I also started Brandon Sanderson's Warbreaker...wow that's been amazing so far. Book club is in a week and a half and I'd really like to re-read North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, but not sure I'll fit it in, because I also need to read some Edith Wharton for The Classic Circuit.
Oh, and I have a blog tour scheduled, but haven't received the book! Now that's going to be tricky! :)
