Snobby newspaper book reviewers.

faggingBananas is not a great newspaper reader, however once a week i do read the book reviews.  I don’t actually read most of it as i scan it as for most weeks there is usually nothing worth reading*.

I now seem to find most of the books i review here are from elsewhere.  Many of those are given a chance.  A week prior to this i was reading about a book and an author i had never heard of, it sounded interesting and i reserved it.   One week later and its in the newspaper.

Somehow either i can spot a zeitgeist or perhaps a mainstream reviewers too are spoon fed this ‘featured’ stuff.  It does make me wonder about it.
