A while ago I came across a site where the idea is to ‘vet’ books, thereby giving book bloggers confidence that those on offer for review are of a consistent high standard. The vetting is done by peer review; when a book has 6 reviews, if it has scored well enough for content and editing the book gets ‘vetted’ status and is added to the list from which the bloggers can check out copies for review.
I decided to try the system out for the first of the Words and Water Group’s anthologies:
I’m pleased to report it is now among the first books to have achieved vetted status.
Check it out and see if you like the way the site is being developed: It’s early days yet but I think it could catch on in a big way. If you join in now your ideas can influence how it is shaped. Quite exciting really 🙂
