Academic literary critics have long eyed book reviewers, their public counterparts, with suspicion. For example, in The Armed Vision, a 1948 study of the methods of modern literary criticism, Stanley Edgar Hyman makes the following heavily weighted distinction, "the reviewer, more or less, is interested in books as commodities; the critic in books as literature." However, the past 15 years have seen a proliferation of forms and forums for online writing about books that combine the literary and the commodity in complex and interesting ways, deconstructing and reevaluating the distinctions between these terms.
