Books for Review for RM
Here’s a great opportunity to get books and get your ideas into print. Review for RM. Typically, you will get about 90 days to read the books and send us your review; you get great books (free!!!), plus everyone (o.k., maybe not everyone,but a lot of people) get the opportunity to see how complex and subtle your mind really is by reading your insightful and trenchant reviews. The only caveat is, if you owe me a review you don’t get more books until I receive the review you owe me Seems fair, right?
So please, sign up for a review — heck, maybe even a review essay — and let us bask in the delight of reading your excellent prose. Below is a list of books recently received by RM for review. Please contact me if you are interested in reviewing any of them in either the ‘standard’ form (about 1200 words max per book) or short review (a 300-500 word ‘notice’).
A number of these books might fit well together in a review essay. If you’re interested in writing a longer piece that reviews several books, please let me know.
Also, note that I have appended a previous books received list to this one. Feel free to choose from that list as well.
We love to get contributions from our readers, so please, take advantage of this!!! It will benefit us all.
Finally, RM welcomes suggestions for reivews to add to the list or please. If there's work you'd like to see reviewed in the pages of RM, please let us know.
