Reviewer Scorecard

Updated December 31, 2012

We like books! We really like them!

As you can see from the newly updated Reviewer Scorecard, a good percentage of the books we've reviewed received good or better grades and recommendations. This Scorecard puts our staff and their grades into perspective and, when combined with our Staff Profiles, should assist in helping readers find reviewers with whom they are most in tune. The Scorecard is updated for current reviewers only.

Thanks to AAR resident stats pro, LinnieGayl, for putting together the new Reviewer Scorecard. She will be providing these updates several times a year.

NOTE: The Reviewer Scorecard totals for our staff do not include any audio reviews that they have prepared and that appear in the Speaking of Audiobooks column.
