Judge: Dana Reinhardt
With that out of the way, yay for Dana Reinhardt for having an opinion and owning it. If yesterday’s takeaway for bloggers was a terrific list to use while writing a blog post, today’s lesson is “own your words.”
Reinhardt’s decision is hers; it is her opinion; it is subjective. And that is exactly what this tournament is about — discovering the different ways people view books. What they like, what they don’t.
And isn’t that what blogs are about, too? What people like, and what they don’t? And that both responses are valid, honest responses.
Dana, you broke my heart. Even though the book you selected? I LOVED it. So, I should not be too upset by your decision. And I have recommended that book to many people who really enjoyed it.
Anyway: while I disagree with the outcome, I am totally Team Dana Reinhardt for owning her decision.
Here’s to the Undead Poll bringing back my personal, subjective, favorite!
