I must be getting a reputation. Penelope emiled to say she'd seen an unusual word and thought of me. Tartuffrey is the behaviour of a tartuffe. It means to express beliefs and opinions you don't hold in order to disguise your own feelings and motives. It was created by Moliere in about 1664 - and I thought sock puppetry was something new!
What do you think about that? Writers either writing their own glowing reviews and rubbish ones for 'rivals' or paying others to do it for them? I worry that it devalues genuine reviews and it seems even reviewers agree. Do you take any notice of Amazon reviews (and the like) when purchasing books?
Maybe sock puppets should stop writing reviews and sub here instead? They're not looking for wholesome fun and morals.

Here's a chance to win books by Lee Child.
Yes I have socks with faces on and I photograph them. What's your point?
