What's the next big thing in the world of book reviews?  Are bloggers and sites like Goodreads moving traditional review sources out of the way?  Is this a good thing or a bad thing?  How do we evaluate trustworthiness? How does all this affect how we find and select books?   Recent articles such as  Critical Reviewing in the Age of Twitter, The Best Book Reviews Money Can Buy, or this article by Roxane Gay analyzing the ethnic breakdown of authors reviewed by the New York Times  in 2011 raise interesting questions about the future of reviewing.   You can join the discussion about this - and many other exciting topics - at the 2012 YA Literature Symposium.  See you in St. Louis!
