Critic

I already have a "Reviewer" website & everything I intend to initially list here is already listed there. The reason why I've created this "Critic" site is because most of my reviews, my criticism, is on Goodreads & Goodreads continues to change in a way unsatisfactory to myself. At 1st, I was in conflict with one or more of my fellow "Goodreads librarians" over some of the things that I chose to review. Then Goodreads was sold to Amazon. That wasn't much of a problem at 1st but it seems to me that big business will eventually start to prioritize money-making over scholarship & that seems to be what's happening now. Then the algorithms started to dominate. My name, "tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE" became "Tentatively, A Convenience" & then "Tentatively, Convenience". My protests against that were, predictably, to no avail.

Now, Goodreads has decided to entirely cut out the "Creative Writing" option. Goodreads contributors were able to put work that exceeded their review-length limits &/or that weren't reviews under their "Writing". The only length limits there were for chapters & one could upload multiple chapters. I mainly, but not entirely, used this feature to allow me to put long reviews online. In the usual review place I put links to the longer reviews. Now, as of the beginning of September, 2022, all those longer reviews will be deleted & all the links in the shorter reviews will be broken. Since most of the short revies are just the beginnings of the long ones & since the long ones are important to me because I put so much thought & work into them I now have to put them online here & begin the arduous task (probably not one to ever be finished) of redirecting the readers of the short reviews. I'm going to start with the most recent review & eventually work my way backwards. The numbers will be confusing because older reviews that I'm creating a new webpage for will get a new number but be placed in the order in which they were written.
