I'm thinking someone should start a reviewer's club. I already run one of the clubs, so it would be a bit much for me. However, I think it would be cool to have a central spot for reviewing. A place to learn and discuss the art. I have run contests before, so there can be activities that involve writing and competing as well. Plus, whatever other activities the club members come up with.
Usually the Founder of the club is mostly there to post challenges and hopefully try and keep things organized. Trust me, there isn't a lot of work involved at all.
Anyway, just an idea. I know I haven't thought about it enough to present something concise and sensible. But here's the idea. LOL

I love this idea, Michael! Since Tom never agrees with our requests to promote better reviewing by having a tutorial available on the front page, this would serve as a forum where members who wish to improve in the art of reviewing can come and learn. I like the idea of contests too, as that will nudge people to make efforts. However, I cannot commit the time to organizing it, so I hope someone steps up and takes this one. I'd certainly make a point of joining the activities on occasion. :)

"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
