Stuff to Review!

Hey there, I just consolidated all of the review forums into one, so there won't be separate forums for DVDs, books, and music. I will just post whatever I have in one place.

If You Believe In Mermaids... Don't Tell by A.A. Philips: Some things you just can't say, even to your parents. "Dad, did you ever want to be a mermaid?" Nope. Don't say it. Not if you're a boy. You gotta keep it inside. Maybe thirteen-year-old Todd Winslow is the best diver at summer camp. If only diving could save him. Underwater is a much kinder world, a secret mermaid world that no one else can know about - not Dad, and definitely not Brad, the camp's numero uno bad boy. Todd tries to fit in, playing nice with flirty model-wannabe Sylvie and shunning nature-nerd Olivia - but you can only fool people for so long. Brad is watching every move, ready to expose all that's different about Todd. Then there's the doll thing. And Dad finds out. How will Todd survive now?

So, if you want any of the above to review (and your name doesn't appear below), just reply to this message and pm me your address and I'll send it out. obviously, you need to be cool with a package coming from me to your house/apartment/mail drop, etc.

For the books, you all get two months from the time you receive them to turn in your review. Failure to review things within that time knocks you off the review list for a year. We just have too many things that weren't being reviewed and, more importantly, were given to people ahead of others who might have reviewed them in a timely manner, so not only were they not reviewed, other people were denied the opportunity to enjoy them and share that experience with the rest of us (the latter being the much bigger deal).

Again, if these deadlines do not appeal to you, do not sign up for them. let someone who has the time and interest do it instead.

If your name is below, it is never too late to finally write your reviews.

Reviews still not turned in:
ReinbowGirl -- Charity Girl (book)
Floral Arrangements... -- Hit By A Farm (book)
Ginger - Different Daughters (book)
Yep I'm A Stalker -- Red Carpets and other Banana Skins (book)
AndrewGirl3 -- Available Men (DVD)
Toph -- Out Of Hand (DVD)
Lost in Wonderland -- Cyclizen (book)

Ruby - To Be Chosen (book)
toreador_18 - Sonja (DVD)

I'm not as bad as some of those other people on the list. In my own defense.

Well...

People are always free to write reviews of anything they read that would be beneficial to people on the site. You never need my approval to do such a thing, just write it up and send it to me. It's more the issue that our system is sort of a payment-first plan, since it is "if you agree to review a book, you get a $25 book or $30 movie up front" but, more importantly, it's just that people grab it ahead of others who might have actually reviewed it in a timely manner or, like, at all.

That's more the issue.

But beyond that, there's no need to wait for me on any of this stuff. I think people should write full-on reviews of all the books they read and all the movies they watch, etc., since it benefits everyone else on the site looking for good things to check out, etc.

I would like to help review.

I would like to help review. It usually doesn't take me more than a few days to read a book after I have it.
