Book reviews are perfect for buzzword bingo. Words like compelling, lapidary, page-turner and elegiac appear all-too frequently in book reviews.

Ron Charles, fiction editor and book critic for the Washington Post, has entertained book lovers everywhere with several funny videos about books. In his latest, Sh*t Book Reviewers Say, he mocks such book review fodder.

His laugh-out loud video reviews are only a small part of his day job. Charles writes thoughtful reviews of new novels. Follow him on Twitter for links to his latest reviews.
