Review of something of your choice

Item Name & Description: A review of a book/comic/tv series/movie/etc. of your choice

Starting Bid: $5

Notes: I’ll write a review of something of your choice, to be posted on my blog.

The subject of the review should be something readable (book, manga, comic, short story, etc.) or watchable (movie, anime, tv show, drama, etc.), and it should be limited to about 4 hours of time. So that’s about 500-800 pages of book, or a few comic volumes. It should also be available in a way that’s accessible to me, otherwise it’ll be kind of difficult for me to review it ;).

I’ll post the review within a month of finishing whatever I’m reviewing.

Bidding opens on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.
