To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Take Joy is an incredible book from an astonishing writer. I've had the paperback of this book since it first came out. I'm thrilled to have a Kindle copy.
I first met Jane Yolen at a writer's conference in Texas. She and Bruce Coville were there and did a couple of presentations together as well as sessions of their own. I'll never forget watching them jitterbug at lunch.
Since that conference, I've had more than 70 books published. I still read chapters from Take Joy whenever I need a boost. For several years, I've been a subscriber to Jane's poem a day group. I highly recommend all of her books and her daily poems. Her writing is unique. And so is she.
