This post: remarkable, dynamic and enriching

I like this list of words used by book reviewers, and their real meanings. For example:

Imaginative: fiction reviewers use this to describe a book that they wish they had written; nonfiction reviewers use it to describe a book they do not believe.

Wears its scholarship lightly: author is not a real scholar. But I am.

I would add:

breathtaking: nothing happens in this book.

Via norm.
