S*** Book Reviewers Say

About 18 months ago, Ron Charles, Washington Post’s fiction editor started a series of video book reviews,”The Totally Hip Video Book Review.” Filled with sight gags and intentionally bad jokes, he takes a satirical look at today’s books and book reviewing.

Released this week, “S*** Book Reviewers Say,” is fun to watch. I made a note to locate his earlier videos and put them on my To Be Watched list, which is now next to my To Be Read list!

I found the video on Galleyat's MediaBistro. It's fun and worth the hop over there.  Here is the direct link to the video.

Let me know what you think.


  1. Utterly amazing! Couldn't stop watching -- could well be the next ... JibJab?

  2. It was funny. But made no sense.

  3. Ruth,
    Wow that was something different. It was an entertaining summary of commonly used terms of review I imagine. He certainly has talent and isn't afraid to use it. Thanks for sharing.

    I got a really good laugh from watching the Ron Charles video. I'm glad you enjoyed it too.
