Who's this we?

If I found out that a magazine we subscribe to was accepting payments for reviews, or favoring advertisers, this would drastically reduce the chances I would renew.

As for Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, I know that a lot of excellent reviewers work with them. And I can see the practicality, for an acquisitions librarian who has to make multiple daily buying decisions, to have sources of brief reviews. But, personally, I ignore them.
