Two book reviews forthcoming

I've got book reviews coming out in two publications soon. The first is coming out in Contemporary Sociology; the second in Symbolic Interaction.

I can say more later, but I want to just write a bit about how book reviewing is awesome.

First, you get a new book. At no cost to you.

Second, you get to learn a lot about something in the relatively short time it takes to actually read the book.

Third, you get to formulate your thoughts about the book and really dissect its argument, thinking about structure, and offering some kind of evaluation, pro, con, or neutral.

I really enjoy this kind of thing, even if writing the reviews is time consuming.
