Could someone read the current book review on the homepage and tell me if it is okay?  I read it and I'm not sure everything about it is "kosher".  It's the one about the book "The Pearl Diver".  Thanks,

Ruth

Hmm. Not sure what you mean by "kosher," but it is an interesting typo to feature on the front page.

I'm pretty sure that word was supposed to be ship...

Well, he mentions an" ARC" and infers that this is not one but doesn't make it clear.  Also I think there is a typo that should be corrected - I'm not usually a stickler for language - but the Home page is public to any one and shouldn't have off-color words - at least I don't think it should.

Janelle, I'm sure you are right - but can't it be corrected?  I don't know - it just embarrasses me since it's one of the first things a person looking at the PBS homepage might see.  Sorry I'm such a silly person - just can't help it, I guess.

Okay, good - now there's a new book review.  I've really enjoyed seeing all the new book reviews.  Has the frequency of book reviews gone up since they started appearing on the home page?

Perhaps a helpful PM to the reviewer letting him know? Chances are the reviewer doesnt even know about his mistake.

Unfortunately the reviewer does not have a public profile so there's no way of finding him to PM.

Ah, I didn't notice that.
