Now lookhttp://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/subst/lists/best/bestsellers.html and choose a book that interests you. You can read reviews by critics and by customers. Look through the reviews and decide if:
the review is positive or negative.
you would like to read the book.
the review is well written.
Now apply what you have learned and write a book review of your own. Send your reviews to Activities so that your colleagues can have a look.
The book review will count towards your CA mark. Please ask if anything is not clear. Richard. 6/10/00
