You Can Write a Book Review
January 18, 2013
Did you know you can write a book review or read someone else's book reviews in our catalog?
The MCPL catalog allows you to search by author, title, or subject and write a book review or read other reader's reviews. Right under the book picture, there is an link to write a review. You can either register your name and write the review or write it anonymously. You can write as little or as much as you want. It is a good way to let others know whether you enjoyed the book and a chance to post your thoughts about what you just read.
You can also read the reviews that others have written. In the same place under the picture of the book, you will find the star rating and the reviews that have been posted. This is a good way to discover what other readers thought of a book before you read it.
Many books that people read are recommended by friends or family. Word of mouth is an easy way to give a book review. But if you like to write, you can also write your review so others can know if you are "thumbs up" or" thumbs down" for a book.
