"In 2015, we published more than 2,700 reviews, |
taking our total to around 43,000."
That is truly an astonishing achievement. And, in my view, every single review exhibits genuine intelligence, insight (often wonderfully illuminating), a determined commitment to doing full justice to its subject matter, and an occasional welcome witticism. There is nothing elsewhere comparable in quality to these reviews, together with all the other rich resources of the site.
And what, of course, is especially astonishing is that, apart from whatever income is generated by advertisements (and I would guess that is probably a rather paltry sum) and occasional donations from those who wish to see the site continuing to flourish, the whole thing is run on the enthusiasm and dedicated efforts of its contributers and organisers.
I use this message to convey my deepest gratitude to all reviewers and those who organise the website.
