[bksvol-discuss] Re: Do We include reviews

I do the same.  I include all the reviews, the author's previous works, and 
upcoming books.  I have found many interesting books using these little pages.

  I always include reviews and advertizing materials unless it's too garble to 
fixed. I usually take out coupons since they're too old to be used.

    Precisely,  I actually get rather ticked off when I encounter books where 
the initial raves have been stripped.  They either help me to understand the 
overal topic/style/tone/ intended audience of the book, or they give me the 
same idea about the author in general.  Besides,  sightlings have them 
available. . . why shouldn't print disabled?

    I put them in because they are there. It is the whole book to me even 
    if no one chooses to read it, unless I can't.

    I was going to say not to bother, but if Guido wants
    them. I don't put reviews from the back cover; if
    reviews of the book have been scanned, as validator I
    leave them, usually. Of course the reviews of the book
    are going to be raves. Guido, do you really find them
    useful, or are you referring to reviews of other books
    by the same author, which I can see would be useful if
    they have info about the book don't just say how
    wonderful the books are.

    I've come to realize that authors of the same genre
    will give positive reviews to a fellow author's book
    in that genre, probably because they want the same
    treatment. I have upon occasion, after
    reading/validating a book, wondered how on earth it
    could have been given such a good review. That's what
    made me realize.
