My former thesis advisor published over 120 book reviews throughout her career. This is very encouraging because I want to get into book reviewing (of academic books, I mean). By the end of this calendar year, I will have 18 published articles and 2 books, so I don’t think anybody will decide that I’m reviewing to pad my CV. I want to do this as a hobby. So I just wrote to review editors of 3 journals offering my reviewing services.
