The Internet Review of Books – Lasting Impressions Book Review Contest

7 April 2008

announces its Spring “Lasting Impressions” Book Review Contest.

What we’re looking for:

Is there a book that has remained front and center on your bookshelf—or in your mind—even though you read it ages ago? A book that made a lasting impression on you? It might be fiction or non-fiction, something you read as a child or an adult, but it somehow made you think, changed you, taught you something, or otherwise has remained important to you through the years.

Write a 600 to 900-word book review that includes the reason this book made a lasting impression on you. Send it as plain text in your e-mail message form to irbcon at Include a bio of 50 words or less.
