This is my blog for topics of general, Jewish interest, named for the magazine I launched in 2005. I have additional blogs for other areas. Follow on Twitter or on Google+ under Ariella Brown. Please note that comment moderation is on, which could keep your comment from appearing right away.
I was planning to post some reviews of books. I glanced at Amazon's to get a sense of the popular view. One book had an average of over 4 stars but had a couple of 1 star ratings. I looked at those. Both of them complain about what they consider the excessive price for the kindle edition. Neither of them actually read the book they are supposedly reviewing. If they wish to complain about the price of e-books, fine, but that does not mean they should give a low rating to a book they haven't read. And for those people who do not wish to shell out $14.95 per book, there's always the library. You may not be able to get the book as soon as it comes out, but you will be able to get it eventually.
