Why This Book Reviews Index

 Index of My Book Reviews on Other Sites
One can enjoy reading anywhere.

Before I started this blog dedicated to reviewing books, I wrote many book reviews on other sites.  Some just share a few thoughts about the books, but others are quite thorough. I thought it might be useful to my readers to index them all here. I have tried to give a hint on the books’ contents beside most links if it’s not obvious in the classification what to expect.

I am in the process of moving some of this work to this site, so if you see a title that isn’t a live link, check back soon and it may be in a separate post.
