All Eschewed Up

Via Julie (with the awesome sense of humor) at Children's Illustration: the seven deadly words of book reviewing. These might rival rejection letter clich├ęs.

And look, look! Somebody does use the word "eschew" in real life!

I'm going to work "eschew obfuscation" into all of my conversations today. (My conversations will, most likely, be about dirty socks and homework.)

Jennifer Thermes said...

Oh, those two are definitely worth eschewing AND obfuscating. ;-)

Barbara O'Connor said...

That's hilarious, Jennifer! I'm going to eschew ALL reviews. (yeah, right...)

Jennifer Thermes said...

Barbara- Only the ones that eschew you up and spit you out. (Oh my... how easily I'm amused!)
