Reviewer Maryanne Raphael also chooses to review only those books she wants to recommend. "Like Oprah Winfrey, I love books and want everyone to enjoy them." she says. "Many of the authors whose books I review become friends. We are all writers in love with books and the life they represent. That's one of the great rewards of book reviewing--the networking, making friends and helpful connections. And free books of course. But save me from free books I don't want to read." Shari Weiss in Pages Magazine Jan/Feb 2000
