Thank you David W - Re: Owner Review - Book - A Walk in the Woods
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner
Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you
are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The
Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to
get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely
manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days.
All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an
official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response
from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this
timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask
that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our
experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved
and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have
submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start
applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with
the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K.,
the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group.
These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered
carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your
review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things
easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject
line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups
list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an
Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post
their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you
have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in
the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they
will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in
the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this
yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via
the list or contact me directly.

- EDIT: A WALK IN THE WOODS - DAVID WILKES
Title: A Walk in the woods
### EDIT: `Woods' should be capitalized.
Publisher: Broadway Books
City and State of Publishing: New York, New York USA
Publisher's URL: <<HYPERLINK GOES HERE - "http://www.broadwaybooks.com
<http://www.broadwaybooks.com> " LINK TEXT = "www.broadwaybooks.com
### Edit: Since Broadway Books is a subsidiary of Random House,
using a subpage of www.randomhouse.com, and a Walk in the Woods also
shows up when searching the main Random House site, the URL should be
www.randomhouse.com. You might consider making the
publisher "Broadway Books, a subsidiary of Random House, Inc."
### Comment: You might give the dimensions of the book.
However, I do admire the author freely exposing his poor judgment or
lack of knowledge, and his skill at describing the lesions he learned.
### EDIT: describing the *lessons* he learned.
### Comment: The only other thing I might suggest is that you
comment on whether you actually learned anything new from the book
that you might use in the future, or make a comment to the fact that
you did not learn anything you think you will use in the future.
What comes to mind for me is whether you leaned any of the traditions
of the AT such as the `half-gallon challenge', about resupply, or
shelter use etiquette.
Go ahead and upload when you've made the necessary edits and optional
Thanks for all your hard work on this interesting review!
