It's clear from the many nominations that they've made for the About Catholicism Readers' Choice Awards that the readers of the About.com GuideSite to Catholicism read a lot of Catholic books. Now you have a chance to share your thoughts on the Catholic books you've read with your fellow readers.
I have set up a simple form that you can use to write a review of a Catholic book. You can review your favorite Catholic book, new or old. Or a Catholic book you hate. Or simply any Catholic book that you have read, even if you found it so-so. Theology, apologetics, catechisms, devotionals, prayerbooks, history, biography, hagiography, fiction—all types of Catholic books are fair game. And you don't have to stop with one: You can review as many Catholic books as you wish; just simply fill the form out again for each additional book.
I'll feature the best reviews in future blog posts and in the twice-weekly About.com Catholicism Newsletter (subscribe here, if you haven't already). And right now, during the nomination period for the About Catholicism Readers' Choice Awards, is a great time to write a review—especially if it's a book you're excited about and would like to see become a finalist in the Readers' Choice Awards.
Your review doesn't have to be long—about 40 words minimum, and 500 words max. It's the quality that counts, not the quantity.
So what are you waiting for? Pull that volume off the shelf, and write a review of a Catholic book today!
