Book Reviews

As the number of posts on this blog is gradually building up, I felt I ought to try and organise it a bit better. So I'm trying out the Google Blogger 'Pages' function.

This, my first such page, is for all my book reviews, listing them as links in various categories. I'll start out by listing them alphabetically, by the author's surname, and see how that works!
