Everyone has an opinion. We all talk about TV programmes we’ve watched, films we’ve been to see, our favourite shops or the best place we visited on our holidays. Everyone likes good advice. We will ask someone who has already been there or read it or watched it for their opinion – and then follow (or ignore) what they said!
Crime Fiction fans may look on Amazon reviews to see what other people thought about the latest James Pattison book. Restaurant reviews appear in every newspaper or city guide, and Film review programmes are on the radio and TV. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets now has 8,000 reviews on Amazon! A lot of people are writing reviews and a lot of people are reading them.
You can now write reviews of your library books. So why would you want to write a review? Perhaps you want to tell other students about the textbook you borrowed – did it explain things properly or was it difficult to understand? What is the best book on your lecturers reading list – what was helpful in your exam? You may have really enjoyed reading a book from the Hockney Library Reading Collection and want other people to know. Share your thoughts with the rest of college. It’s easy – just follow the instructions below and write away!
