Books Compared

Deze groep is officieel gaan sluimeren. Zo gaat dat. Als je deze groep wilt laten herleven, of een nieuwe groep maken over het zelfde onderwerp ga naar deze pagina.

Take reviewing a step further. Pick two books and compare them. Did you love one book and hate the other? Or love both despite (or because of) their differences? How was the subject matter similar? Did the authors come to radically different conclusions about the same topic? Were the subjects different but the authors' attitudes or styles intriguingly similar?
