Confessions of a Part-time Reviewer

Just another weblog

About the Reviewer April 8, 2010


Amanda Kennison, Novice Book Reviewer



     I’m a senior at Elon University in Elon, NC set to graduate in just over a month.  For the past four years I’ve been pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English, with concentrations in literature and PWR (Professional Writing and Rhetoric).  I am also greatly interested in history, particularly American history, so I sought out minors in history and American Studies.  

     After graduation I plan on relocating to the Washington D.C. area.  Currently, I am weighing my options between graduate school and job offers.  But whatever next step I take, I know it will put me further on my path to joining the book industry.  My combined love of reading, writing, editing, and criticizing has made me well aware that I want a position which will allow me to experience and influence the future of the book.  

     This site aims to introduce visitors to my own literary opinions, while helping them develop their own.  By no means do I consider myself a definitive voice on any of the topics addressed on this site, but I do believe people have the right to have their thoughts heard (or read, in this case).  Thus, I hope my reviews and tips will promote the desire to read and discuss among my audience.
