1.0 out of 5 stars Plagiarism is bad., January 25, 2013
This review is from: The $5 Dinner Mom One-Dish Dinners Cookbook (Paperback)
Plagiarism is bad. I read the $5 Meals for $5 book in 2007 when it went to top 10. This book duplicates even the format of a book written by Jaci Rae. I wonder if the originator of $5 dollar meals, Jaci Rae, knows about this. I looked up in the Library of congress. Her copyright is Txu 1-614-663 dated Year of Completion 2008. I do know she has written so many books on this top since 1998 because I follow her career. When I saw this book it made me very upset for Jaci Rae. I am going to try to get her on one of her websites pennymeals.com or she has another shopforaday.com for her Shop for a Day with J[[ASIN:0974622990 5 Meals for $5 - How to Feed 5 People 5 Meals for $5.00 - $8.00 or Less! You Don't Need to Be Wealthy To Eat Healthy]Jaci Rae. This woman's blog even resembles Jaci Rae's. Amazingly disgusting.

Very interesting . . .
You mention the other author's name 5 times in one small paragraph, say you follow her career, and went to a lot of trouble (?) to give the necessary data to quickly find her work. I can't help but wonder if you have some financial reason to build up the other author and discredit this one. I also find it interesting that you have no information here to identify you (You gave your identity as the title of the book!) and have no other reviews available for comparison.

It is my understanding that following a format is not plagiarism. (Resumes, business letters, telephone books, and many other written materials follow common formats.) That could just be the publisher's style. Copying another's work without giving proper credit is plagiarism. Review THIS book. Which recipes are you saying are copied from someone else?
