Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded: 06/21/13
I've had my website longer than John Scalzi but he's been blogging for longer. Your Hate Mail Will be Graded was originally published in 2008 to celebrate ten years of entertaining, thought provoking blog posts with a political bent. The content was revised somewhat for the trade paperback that was released by Tor two years later.
The book is divided into themes, meaning that these (sometimes) fleshed out posts are often times out of order. While it's good for seeing all the essays on a given topic, I would have preferred to see the progression of Scalzi's thought process as well as skills as a blogger.
As a current (but not long time) reader of Whatever I enjoyed the chance to catch up with the earlier posts. I find it easier to read in print than scrolling and clicking through pages and pages of archives as one would have to do with a blog as old as Scalzi's. I recommend the book, therefore to anyone new to his site or to fans of similar political blogs (such as Balloon Juice).
