A New Feature in Reviews in One-Minute Book Reviews

Starting this week, reviews on this site will have a new feature in the extra material at the end — this section will include the titles of several or more sample chapters if a book has chapters that are titled instead of just numbered. The extra material currently includes such things as the best and worst lines in a book and the name of its editor. The titles will give a fuller sense of what’s in books without adding substantially to the length of reviews. They will also make it easier to find books through keyword searches.

Another reason for the change: Like most journalists, I believe strongly in the principle of: Never hang people with your words when you can let them hang themselves with their own. Like the best and worst lines from books that appear regularly on this site, the chapter titles are a way of handing authors a little rope.
