Why There Are No Negative Reviews Here at the Hearthfire

Firstly, it's not because I'm super-nice. Although, of course, I am quite nice :)

My reasoning is simply that:

  • life's too short to continue reading a book I'm not enjoying 

and

  • there are already so many good books that I can't read them all and people still keep writing them ;) 

and

  • if I haven't read the whole of a book, I don't feel I should review it


I know not everyone feels this way, and I do see the whole professionalism argument, but at the same time, I'm not a reviewer or book blogger by profession.
