I don't mean to offend anyone, but I am a long time fan of Old Media Monday and this new version of OMM seems but a shadow of its former self. You've even gotten rid of the the old title and retained only the subtitle--Reviewing the Reviewers Where's Tom?

Agreed! I used to look forward to this on Tuesday mornings. Now, it's just bare bones fluff.

I agree. I don't generally read these posts anymore. Bring back the old format, please.

I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one who misses the old format. OMM has become the only post I read on Omnivoracious anymore--too many of the postings have become fluff--and so much so that I no longer read this blog on a daily basis. Omnivoracious really seems to have become a mere shadow of what it was, sad to say.

Ditto. For a couple of years now I've depended upon this compilation of reviews to discover new authors, in addition to just enjoying the reviews themselves. PLEASE bring back the old format!!!

Huh. I used to buy 2-3 books a month from these reviews. Haven't bought one yet in 2011 that I can recall. Admittedly, I'm too lazy right now to click through and figure out if these publications are still putting out the same number of reviews, but my gut says probably. Wonder what's up, this weekly blog used to drive sales!

Yes, I completely agree. Please bring back the old format. I really look forward to posts on Tuesdays, but it's definitely lacking now. Can you at least give us an explanation about the change?

Ich mag lesen Ihre Post Sir. Ich fühle, dass ich ein Sachverst?ndigen auf diesem Gebiet zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt zu werden. Vielen Dank für die mir die dringend ben?tigte Inspiration.
