Hi Bob,

I think the volunteer manual asks that we not use reviews.  And, I also
think that anything written by anyone anywhere is now considered to be
copyrighted by them.  Not positive on that, but for synopses, I'd stick to
the book jacket material or material from the text of the book itself, for
safety's sake.  Just my take.

I didn't realize it either until Allison pointed it out when we were working
on some publisher quality books.

I'm not sure, but I think that if you find a review written by another
reader: that's okay as it isn't copyrighted.

That's everything you always wanted to know about synopsiating but were
afraid to ask.

Bob
