Smiley Sociology Study #9 - It's Book Review Time

Image by Surachai via

This month I'm writing my first book review,
so I thought I'd make you write one too
unless, of course, you've already reviewed one
and don't have time to write another 'cuz you're busy having fun!

Who knows if anything sociological will be concluded
but into my mind this theme sharply protruded
as a way to encourage book gifting through the holidays
and give our fellow writers the kind of advertising that pays.

Remember, although it can be, your post need NOT be poetry.
Bloggers of all types may use Mister Linky.
I only ask that you stick to this month's chosen theme,
read others' post and leave comments (that aren't mean).
Next month, after I've analyzed all your posts,
I'll write my own rhyme and link to the entries I liked most.
If you don't already have a new book in mind,
many bloggers have e-books which are easy to find!

Non rhyming directions for the poetry challenged:

(1) Create a new post about a rare animal or link to one that was already on your blog. Please note: your post does not need to be poetic or rhyming. All styles of blogs are welcome as long as their post is a book review.

(2) Please include a link back to the Smiley Sociology Study within your post to help spread the word about the link exchange. The more "data" / posts I have to peruse, the better pseudo sociological results I can produce!

(3) copy the link for that post and paste link into Mister Linky below.
Please link directly to the post you want to share, not to your home page.
I will delete your link from the study if I cannot find a book review to link to directly.

(4) leave a comment here to let me know you've posted a link

(5) read links left by others and tell them (nicely) what you think
