Review Policy

One of the things I have done on this blog in the past is review books, as I firmly believe that doing my job well means keeping abreast of new titles. I have found myself with less free time, however, in which to write the types of reviews that I would like to, and that I would find useful were I to read them on other blogs and sites. There are myriad other professionals sharing extremely insightful and well-considered reviews on other blogs, etc., something for which I do not have the capacity at this time. As a result, I am no longer accepting requests to review titles on this blog.

I continue to review for School Library Journal, and in the course of my professional selection responsibilities (I collect fiction for youth and teens) I still see much of what is published for children and young adults. I will not, however, be sharing individual reviews on this blog.

At such a time as I may begin reviewing books again on The Show Me Librarian, I will update this page with my guidelines and contact information for review requests.
