The review has also been cited for excellence by the American Book Critics Circle and reviews have been reprinted in scholarly compilations of the best literary criticism. Within the first half of 2012 the review anticipates publishing 150 detailed reviews weekly, making it by far the most comprehensive source of reviews across a wide range of genres in the US.
