I'm not sure how much I have to say in response to your earlier post, but did not want to leave you hanging, either. A star-rating system is an interesting thought, but I'm not 100% how to build or implement something like that for the site. Perhaps it's as simple as installing a plug-in, but until we investigate this feature and give it some careful consideration, the reviews will remain as they are. It's a fine idea, though, and certainly one that I think warrants a conversation - so thank you for that suggestion.
Regarding the notion of listing the books: Every book we discuss on the podcast is listed in the show notes on our main site as well as elsewhere. It's a feature that listeners often over-look, because well, most of the time people just grab the show from their preferred outlet and call it a day. However, the information you're referring to is always there in the notes. We haven't always provided this information, but after several requests for it (in the past), we've been sure to include that info. I hope that helps.
As for the book suggestion, I can only speak for myself here, but I would guess that this will come down to matter of personal interest. As you might know - save for a few publishers who do provide us with review copies - we pay for all of our own books. Often times, for me at least, I've found it difficult to get my hands on more independent graphic novels or books from companies like Black Mask, ect. Unlike some of my co-hosts, I do not actively engage in purchasing comics online - not just because I'm a fan of physical media, but because I've experienced nothing but aggravation when hoping to use my tablet to access places like Comixology, ect.
I have written the title of the book down, though, and will keep it in mind during my travels to and from the states.
I hope that I've offered you some insight to your suggestions and questions. Again, I can only speak for myself as my compatriots could very well have solutions or suggestions unlike my own. Thaks so much for offering your feedback, as it is always valued.
