Weekly Geeks: New ‘official’ policy

deweys-weekly-geeks27This week’s Weekly Geeks assignment is one I remember reading about on Dewey’s blog, but it was before I’d joined in the fun. I have started doing it, at least mentally, sometime in the interim, though. The assignment?

  1. Write a post encouraging readers to look through your archives (if you have your reviews in a particular place on your blog, point them there), and find the books that they have also written reviews. Tell them to leave a link to their review on your review post. For example, I’ve written a review for Gods Behaving Badly and Jane Doe leaves a link to her review of Gods Behaving Badly in the comments section of my review.
  2. Edit your reviews to include those links in the body of the review post.
  3. Visit other Weekly Geeks and go through their reviews. Leave links for them.
  4. Leave a note somewhere on your blog to let people know this is your new policy.
  5. Write a post later this week letting us know how your project is going!

OK, so. What are you waiting for? Have a look through my past reviews (I did recently create a page with all of them on it), and when you find books you’ve reviewed also, leave me a link — on my review of that book — and I’ll add your review to the post itself.

And now I’ll quote Nymeth:

    And I suppose that now is a good time to bring this up: please please please don’t be shy about leaving links. The reason why I’m saying this is because I can feel reluctant about it myself. I worry that I’ll look like a spammer, even though rationally I know there is no reason to…. In any case, your links will always be welcomed.

  1. I looked at your review and I haven’t actually reviewed ANY of the ones you have! Yikes! Must update my TBR pile…

  2. Lily, I’ve added your blog to my crime fiction search. I can see you have read a couple mof autjhors I like – Alexander McCall Smith and Jacqueline Winspear for starters

  3. I’ve added two links to reviews on my blogs. I put links to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society and The Mighty Queens of Freeville in the comments of their respective reviews. I also read a few other reviews while going through the list, Black Robe and Cloudstreet, which I have read and really enjoyed. And Nine Lives, Cutting For Stone, and American Rust, which I want to read.

  4. I’ve read a lot of the books you’ve reviewed, but most of them were pre-blogging. I’ve just linked your Potato Peel Pie Society review to mine.

  5. I haven’t read any of the books you have, but there are a couple that are on my TBR list, which, oddly, does not seem to be getting any smaller!

  6. I’ve added the links to the three Harry Potter book’s I read, but there are at least 6 or 7 that I’ve read but before I started blogging and about 6 more that are on my TBR Pile!!!

  7. I’ve added a link to your review of Miracle Girls – my review can be found here.

  8. I’ve read a number of books that you have reviewed, although there were quite a few that were in my preblogging days. I have added your links to my reviews of:

    The Rose of Sebastopol

    The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

    And I have added you to my feed reader.

What do you think? I'd love to know.
